If I Had A Million Dollars...

"I'd buy you a green dress. (But not a real green dress, that's cruel)." ***
AOL is purchasing Jason Calacanis' Weblogs Inc. for $25 million dollars (or a little less according to The Washington Post), which doesn't include salaries for the folks who write their blogs. There's been lots of teeth-gnashing about what it all means, but perhaps at the end of the day it just reaffirms the old Internet adage that "content is king." AOL is bleeding subscribers and they need content to draw people to AOL.com.

As much as I value the independence of Wizbang, I'll have to admit that my jaw dropped to the floor when I saw this analysis of the sale by Tristan Louis using Technorati data. Using the $546 dollar per incoming site link valuation model, Wizbang is currently worth over $1 million dollars.

Actually, given 1946 sites linking, it's $1,063,761.44. Not that I was mildly obsessing or anything...

*** Obligatory Bare Naked Ladies song reference.
