I didn't hear this until I flipped on MarketPlace this evening, but among the other properties the Huffington Post founder will oversee in her new job as her Post joins AOL: MapQuest.

As part of the deal, HuffPost founder Arianna Huffington will oversee all of AOL's editorial content, including MapQuest, as well as Moviefone and AOL's expanding local news initiative Patch, the Times says, while AOL's new Politics Daily service likely will merge into Huffington Post.

That will be very interesting with all the OpenStreetMap efforts. I think it's a good fit. - Denver Business Journal
