AOL has a legacy as the first Internet service and instant messaging provider. Things seemed good in 2000 (but really started to go bad) when it merged with Time Warner. Year by year, AOL lost credibility. It was set free by Time Warner in 2009, and has been in rebuilding mode. It now has TechCrunch, the Huffington Post and Engadget under ownership as it reinvents itself as a digital media company. So AOL has not fallen through the floor, but can it ever get back to its early heyday?
