Washington Post: Ex-Media Executive In AOL’s Future?
„Deposed German media baron Thomas Middelhoff, who was bounced by the board of directors of Bertelsmann AG in July, has met with top executives at AOL Time Warner Inc. over the past two days, according to sources familiar with the meetings.
Middelhoff and Case are simpatico in their vision of media convergence, which describes a future in which several types of content — such as voice, data, music and video images — are available through a variety of devices, such as cell phones, pagers and PCs. Both are known as longer-term strategists than as day-to-day, hands-on executives. Middelhoff is on Case’s Instant Messenger „buddy list“ and the two correspond.“
