AOL's Ted Leonsis Launches Blog
Posted on February 10, 2006AOL Vice Chairman Ted Leonsis has made his blog available to the public. Previously, it was an internal blog that could only be read by AOL employees. Leonsis says some people have been asking him why he isn't using the AOL Journals platform for his blog. This is a good question. This post has his answer.
The blog launches with a unique feature -- you can also get Ted as an AOL AIM superbuddy.A few people have asked me why I'm not using the AOL Journals product for this blog. I love AOL Journals, and there are several of them that I check regularly, but the simple answer is that my tech guys told me that we needed to use a different platform in order to do the things I want to do with this blog. Beyond RSS feeds, we're kicking around a few other ideas that will be rolling out in the next few weeks and months. Stay tuned!
