CollegeHumor.com just got absorbed into IAC / InterActiveCorp (yay, creative name). As fellow blogger and recent aquaintence, Zack Klein, points out, Connected Ventures + IAC + Barry Diller = more snacks in the cabinets. Congrats to CV and company. By the way, it's coolest to read an announcement as a blog post rather than an official press release.

I think the digg comments on this story are interesting. There seem to be a lot of

1.) "CH is getting rich off other peoples content". That seems to be a stupid critique a) coming from a digg user and b) CH does provide a lot its own content.

2.) "CH is unprofitable and it is a stupid purchase". I don't know this to be a fact but everything I read about CH and Connected Ventures (its parent company) says that they are making money. CH does well with advertising and Busted Tees is bringing in cash too.

Digg's community is best described as a loyal, generally smart and extremely whiny group of self-righteous haters.

"getting rich off of other people's content"

I don't know to what ethical degree that is true. But I imagine most of that content is submitted willingly by the authors. And in most cases, even if it's "stolen," CH is still poviding an enormous audience. If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it...?
