Congrats on the sale, Geoff!

For those who aren't familiar with how online advertising works, even if IB didn't change a thing, they could still generate more revenue through DVDTalk than Geoff could by himself. I'm sure IB already has relationships with blue-chip clients that Geoff could never get in the door with as a single entity, and since I'm sure they sell across multiple sites, DVDTalk will now be included in much wider buys. I'm sure they'll be bumping up CPM rates for the site as well. And once IB gets some other entertainment sites under their umbrella as well, then DVDTalk will be even more valuable to sell against since you can target more likeminded eyeballs.

I can't believe I did not notice this until I read it in Home Media the other day (an old issue at that). I guess the changes thus far have been very small.

I credit John Sinnott, Daniel Hershleifer and Mike Flacy for making the transitions which have been going on behind the scenes absolutely seamless! The three of them have stepped up and taken over many of the key editorial tasks that I've traditionally done freeing me to work on the macro company issues and the move to Internet Brands.

Since all 3 are long term DVD Talkers expect the same 'voice' of the site to continue as it has.

You get the feeling pilot (like many of us) doesn't exactly like IB.

I get the feeling IB will start making changes in the future, once the dust has settled. Can't post this way, can't post that way, can't post these kinds of images (oops, we already have that), can't use this kind of language, etc.

DVD Polizei I've seen no indication that IB intend to be so "hands on" &/or "controlling". And I can't really see it happening with the current mod/admin line-up in place. Just my two pennies.

IB did keep their word about being hands-off. Unfortunately, the erred too far the other direction and didn't allow the forum to keep up with the times.
