Jason Calacanis on the loose?

What would it take to land Jason Calacanis, GM of AOL? Valleywag called here today, I hear, and tried to find out if he’d be coming to PodTech.

Oh, that’d be fun, but come on, why would Jason want to play in someone else’s pond? If I were in his position I’d start something new.

If the rumors of Jason leaving AOL are true, AOL just got a lot more uninteresting.

UPDATE: Jason confirmed he is leaving AOL. Beet.TV reports that Egadget’s Peter Rojas is staying at AOL.
