YIKES! AOL, which as far as I’m concerned is a cancer on the internet, is buying several of my favorite blogs. Well, sort of. They are buying Weblogs Inc., and many of my favorite blogs, like engadget, TUAW, and download squad, are part of Weblogs Inc. It’s odd that I haven’t see any mention of this on any of those blogs. Do you suppose they don’t know yet?
First NetNewsWire gets bought, and now Weblogs Inc. What’s next? Will Microsoft buy Apple?
In all fairness, I don’t actually know the relationship between Weblogs Inc., and the individual blogs that I like. So, I don’t really know the ramifications of such a purchase. I just hate to see AOL get anywhere near the things I like.
