AOL has partnered with HBO to launch "This Just In," a new comedy-themed broadband channel set to go live sometime during the first quarter of 2007. The new site will feature a heavy dosage of video content, including lots of topical comedic performances, as well as a blogging platform which will allow the site's audience to comment on the days events — ranging from politics to pop culture.Tsk. What a gross oversight on their part: "This Just In" has already been done! Won't their faces be red when they find out that they're stomping all over MY little blogfeet.
My immediate plan of action is to be gracious and understanding. I will sit back and wait for their apologies in the form of fruit and floral baskets. Truckloads of them. And maybe a few all-expense paid trips to one red-carpet affair or another.
Either that, or I'll ride their coat tails and bask in the staggering number of hits on my site meter.
Either one is fine with me.
