AOL RIP: Where The Net Was Born for Many | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis

Final paragraphs of a big-picture AOL profile

"One question about the Verizon purchase is the future of some AOL properties that really do not seem to fit, especially with an ongoing fight over net neutrality. Huffington Post, a major news publisher with a generally liberal tilt, and two leading tech sites, Engadget and TechCrunch, do not seem to fit well with Verizon. Re/code’s Kara Swisher reported talks were already in progress to sell HuffPo to various buyers, with the leader being Germany’s Axel Springer.
Whatever happens in the end, there appears to be not much left of AOL except ads and some members. The end of AOL is not much of a surprise."
