David Kaplan on a smart acquisition by AOL:

As part of the deal, Arianna Huffington, HuffPo’s co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, will be named president and EIC of The Huffington Post Media Group. The new unit will house Huffington Post and AOL content, including Engadget, TechCrunch, Moviefone, MapQuest, Black Voices, PopEater, AOL Music, AOL Latino, AutoBlog, Patch, StyleList, and other sites.
