SnagFilms Launches, Buys indieWIRE. Google Buys This Blog.

Big news in the world of Indie Film 2.0: digital entrepreneurs Ted Leonsis and Rick Allen have launched SnagFilms, a widget-based online documentary portal. They have a good selection of doc features available now. In addition, SnagFilms announced the acquisition of indieWIRE, the respected and important independent film news source (also home to this site). Congrats to all on this news! Meanwhile, Google will soon announce the acquisition of this blog, for an undisclosed eight-figure sum (it was not even disclosed to me). When SnagFilms tried to buy it back from the Silicon Valley billionaires, Google replied “Suck it! Five Albums Worth Your Dime is worth a lot of dimes, er, dollars!”
