AOL Owns You

The Register: AOL buys into homegrown media. I work in the same building as AOL Deutschland, so I knew this was coming. And is why I'm no longer using UserLand software. I got out just in time.

AOL is not just after the content, they want the software behind it as well. Can you imagine Radio on every AOL CD? And then all Radio users being required to use AOL to update their blogs? And that AOL is after Blogger as well? Weblogs as AOL Premium Content, visible only to AOL subscribers?

It's a dark future we're looking at here.

And Happy April Fools Day.
