Still hot here in Pasadena, at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference this morning. Tim Armstrong, the CEO of AOL (NYSE: TWX) is on now, and is covering most of the points he did in interviews earlier this week. I am live tweeting some of the bits here, and some edited/modified highlights below:
» Tim Armstrong, CEO, AOL: We are trying to bring Silicon Valley type of sensibility to content.
» More VC investment in content systems than ad systems over time, and we want to do former.
» Have done 4-5 reviews of Mapquest since I joined. Lotsa work still to do there, around engineering, not strategy.
» Respect for brand marketers has kicked in for us.
» Armstrong to AOL Ventures: This is manifest destiny for you: this is the playbox and figure out your future.
» Relegence and Truveo are big assets for us.
