Wow – things are sure moving fast tonight. Following this evening’s big news, we’re hearing from multiple sources that, effective tomorrow morning, TechCrunch.com will be renamed HuffingtonCrunch.com. Please update your bookmarks.
For those who missed it, the change is the result of AOL’s acquisition of the Huffington Post and Arianna Huffington’s appointment as Editor In Chief of
the entire Internet AOL.
According to the same sources, TechCrunch isn’t the only AOL property to be affected by the Huffington acquisition. We understand that, also from tomorrow, Popeater.com will be renamed “GOPeater.com”, PoliticsDaily will become “PoliticsDailyKos” and Mapquest will be rebranded as “Keith Olbermann’s BEST MAPQUEST IN THE WORLD”
Oh, and “Huffington Post Comedy” will now be called “Engadget”.
