Folio: New Playboy CEO Scott Flanders is a self-proclaimed “believer in print”. “I don’t believe the magazine has lost its relevance,” he said of the men’s mag. “I believe the magazine will come back.”

PaidContent: IAC CEO Barry Diller defended The Daily Beast‘s lack of a business model and said running an ad early on during the Web site’s inception was a mistake. “When I saw it, I said, ‘how can you do this? This is terrible.’ I don’t want to take an ad now because it’s not going to produce revenue for us at this stage and until we conceptualize a manner of advertising that is different than standard display,” he said.
