AOL: Strike 3 at Engadget

It’s tomorrow.

Yes, the now infamous "AOL Way" appears to be working; but not in the way Tim Armstrong envisioned. Nilay makes the third member of the Engadget podcast team to leave in a matter of weeks. Engadget has essentially lost its heart.

Adding to the intrigue is this stunning tweet from venture startup guru Jason Calacanis to Joshua Topolsky shortly after Josh broke the news that he was leaving.



It would appear that the AOL way may just have led to AOL's worst nightmare. It is game on. Bring it!!!!
