AOL Legends Steve Case, Ted Leonsis Join Tim Armstrong For 100-Day 'Revival' Meeting

AOL (TWX) chief Tim Armstrong is holding his 100-days-at-AOL meeting in a 2,000-person air conditioned tent, according to reports on Twitter.

During the event, he unveiled AOL’s new mission statement: “To inform, entertain and connect the world.”

Regarding more layoffs, he reportedly said, “Let me be totally straightforward and honest and transparent: I’ll tell you over the next 60 days.”

Joining him, so far: AOL legends Steve Case and Ted Leonsis, as well as Warren Buffett and Martha Stewart. YouTube-famous blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer also spoke.

Here’s a few notes we’ve pulled off Twitter:

  • “Mission: To inform, entertain and connect the world. Simple and Straightforward.”
  • “Yay, I work for AOL Media!”
  • “Another OMFG, Martha Stewart brought Warren a Cherry Coke onstage!”
  • “Ted Leonsis doing an excellent comparison of old AOL Mission Statements with the new one. Striking similarity!”
  • “Platform A is now called AOL Advertising”
  • “Company all video: AOL Running Man puts down a bottle of bourbon and starts dancing to the “Rocky” theme.”
  • “John Kannapell delivers AOL’s global -> hyperlocal mapping strategy”
  • “Loving the soundtrack from AOL’s all hands meeting!”
