While You Were Out

I guess a lot can happen while you're out to lunch. I got back to my desk and saw an email from Jon Miller with the subject "Say hello to AOL LLC." From now on, America Online is no more; like MCI before it, it has decided to drop the name and just go with the initials AOL.

I guess this should not be news. AOL is 5% owned by Google and 95% by Time Warner. Not many people call the company America Online anymore anyway. Everyone knows it by AOL, or by other, more unfortunate names. Our new branding uses the term AOL, not the old 'hard' triangle with funky 'America Online' written on it.
