What Would You Ask Barry Diller?

Posted by: Jon Fine on June 9, 2009

In the shoulda-done-this-earlier department:

I’m interviewing IAC Chairman and CEO Barry Diller onstage tomorrow at the Advertising 2.0 conference in Manhattan. There’s no set agenda for our discussion, but, as you might guess, I’ll be asking him questions about the whole media/advertising/Web environment, as well as about his company’s strategy.

What questions would you want him to answer?

When you try to agglomerate a bunch of businesses like these under a single corporate umbrella its usually in the hope of rationalization, scale ecoonomies, and synergy. What you get instead is a really toxic brew of intramural squabbling, corrosive politics, and heartbreaking bureaucracy. (See Sumner Redstone, intra alia).

As Tom Freston once famously said “There ain’t no synergy”.
