enternetusers Site News 4 comments

The New York Times now own the largest blog network in the world. They have just agreed to pay $410 million for About.com from Primedia Inc. in an all cash deal. Primedia bought About.com in October of 2000 for $690 million in stock but had trouble in capitalizing upon the purchase.
