AOL Exec Chimes In About “The Call”

The Washington Post asked Jason Calacanis, an AOL exec and headmaster of Weblogs Inc, what he thought of the infamous AOL call. Here’s our responses, in brevis, to what he blogged.

“From what I understand….this is not the average experience.”


“I’m not involved in the access business at all, so I can’t really speak to the details to be honest.”


“When I look at the AOL logo I hear that call”


“It’s going to go down as a watershed moment for the company.”

Knee chopping.

“Sometimes the darkest hour is before the dawn…”


“…and I think that is what that call will come to symbolize: a new era for the company.”

Try… an unmitigated PR disaster.
