Do Blogs Mix with Mass?

Last week it was Time Warner staffers

adjab.jpg Last week it was Time Warner staffers. This week, it’s blogs getting the AOL axe .

AdJab just e-mailed friends with a last goodbye. A slew of the Weblogs Inc. properties AOL acquired from Jason Calacanis in October 2005 are already, or rumored to be soon, on the chopping block. Calacanis even issued a plea, of sorts (complete with a stats chart), to save PVRWire.

Jason’s gone from AOL, just as competitor Nick Denton, recently let his Gawker Media syndication partnership with Yahoo lapse barely seven months into the deal.

Ultra vertical content and mass media — not such cosy bedfellows, it would appear.
