Holy Crap Steve Case Resigned

Holy crap, Steve Case Resigned from AOL today. He’s the co-founder of America Online, the world’s most despised ISP (sorry Narni), and worth about sixty bajillion dollars, but he’s no longer working there. Folks, this is the end of an era, and an interesting day for DC-based AOL, perhaps this means they’ll find a CEO that’s not unwilling to talk about business in non-jargon terms. In his departing statement, Case said “Leaving Time Warner’s Board will give me a greater opportunity to grow Revolution, including avoiding any potential conflicts of interest as Revolution moves into new areas,”

I really do loathe the term “grow the business” as it apparently was invented by an MBA student with a pathetic understanding of the English language, and Case is no exception here. What is it with this town that spawns such horrid phrases?!

    Careful about saying mean things about AOL. It appears it could earn you an anonymous internet stalker, dropping little presents all over the web saying slanderous things about you. Or at least, that’s what happened to me.
