Apparently, News Corp., is back shopping and has just acquired another start-up. I am in middle of Next Net 25 round table event, and don’t have many details. Nearly half way through our event, a little buzz went around the room. The word came from down in Silicon Valley, where IBD was having its under the radar event.
Ross Levinsohn, president of Fox Interactive told the attendees that Rupert Murdoch had snapped up another, though he did not reveal any details. He apparently said that the company was in the room. So I ducked out of our roundtable, and was able to confirm that News Corp., had indeed bought a smallish Web 2.0 company! Which one? Not sure as of now – but rest assured the phone is in maximum use right now.
