- The Networked Society
I think for the consumer we're living at a time where there's the capacity now
to make life simpler, more efficient, and more meaningful. There's the
television set, there's a personal computer, there's a telephone, there might be
a music stereo system. All of these are being woven together, including the
ability to communicate when I'm travelling and not tethered to some home
appliance. So that I can do all the things that I need to do every day. It's a
very exciting opportunity.
- Commitment To Make A Difference
One of the extraordinary opportunities here is not just trying to provide more
universal access to what's currently available, but also to create new links
between, for example, school and the home for the sake of our children, I mean,
it would be an enormous benefit. So now in the context of AOL Time Warner we
think, with our values and our social commitment and our drive to make a
difference and to really influence public policy, that we have a platform to do

- Integrate and Execute
I'm really excited about the AOL/Time Warner merger. Time Warner's leadership
position in information and entertainment is matched with AOL's preeminence on
the Internet. And don't forget our distribution advantage with Time Warner's
broadband cable. The challenge now is to integrate and to execute.

- People: Our Essential Resource
Underlying the success of both AOL and Time Warner is the same essential
resource, and that is talented, innovative people who are committed to their
work and to making a difference. And by bringing these people together in one
company, we are creating an enterprise of truly unlimited possibilities.
- Anytime, Anywhere
This is a new way to reach a broader audience with your content, so that we can
now take our movies and our television and our music and really reach anyone,
anywhere in the world through the medium of the Internet. The combination of our
entertainment content assets and AOL's broad and deep penetration of the online
world is not only going to enable us to move our content before more consumers
around the world, anytime, anywhere, but it's going to make the Internet that
much more a popular place to come for not only information, but for recreation.
- Creating Greater Literacy
When you add to availability, compelling content and ease of use, which is what
AOL brings, that it will just make this thing called the Internet, and
familiarity with it and use of it, more ubiquitous in all of our communities,
and that will help shrink the divide. What can we do, not just in the pursuit of
our business, but through corporate-citizenship-type involvement in the
communities, to educate people, and to create greater literacy around computer
skills and Internet access and understanding.
