Tech Summit Q&A, day 1: AOL’s Tim Armstrong, Arianna Huffington

May 17, 2011

AOL CEO Tim Armstrong and Editor in Chief of The Huffington Post Arianna Huffington joined us Monday for the premiere of the 2011 Reuters Global Technology Summit.

Here’s a clip of Tim Armstrong answering why he thinks the expansion of AOL’s local news service Patch is a sound investment.

And another clip of Tim Armstrong, this time talking about one of two Tech CEOs he admires:

Who’s the other one? Jeff Boyd from Priceline.com.

“He doesn’t get brought up much but he’s one of the best leaders in the Internet space. Very quiet but outstanding results,” Armstrong said of Boyd.

And what does Huffington Post EIC Arianna Huffington think is the coolest technology this year?

“Sleep apps, meditation apps, unplugging and recharging apps.” Huffington is especially fond of Lark, a sleeping aid app start-up from Palo Alto. Lark is used in nap rooms at Huffington Post, Huffington said.
