Rumor Alert: AOL to attempt MySpace assault

AOLOoh, here's some juicy, unsubstantiated buzz: According to Dave Winer, AOL (this blogger's employer) is planning a new service that will challenge MySpace "head on." The announcement will allegedly be made in two weeks.

[Via my boss Jason Calacanis, who neither confirms nor denies, but is probably tenting his fingers right now.]

Update: Down in the comments we've got comfirmation from Armughan Javaid, Program Manager in AOL Technologies' Open Services group. He says "it will be kick-ass!"
