A big part of the Yahoo-AOL-PE talks is the idea that Tim Armstrong wants to merge with Yahoo to drive his vision of building a 21st century media company.
As far as we can tell he’s done two things well:
- He reorganized AOL without killing morale at the company.
- He has a vision for AOL, and he’s trying to execute on it.
Are these two things good enough to put him in charge of a very tricky merger between two mega-web companies?
