THR's 2012 Digital Power 50
The 69-year-old head of IAC, which owns such big digital properties as Ask.com, City Search and Match.com, in recent years has increased his focus on content 2.0 with Ben Silverman-led multi-media studio Electus; CollegeHumor Media; Notional, the production company behind Food Network favorite Chopped; and video-sharing platform Vimeo.
Last year, he added former Disney CEO Michael Eisner, with whom he ran Paramount, to his board of directors -- in a signal of just how key content is for Diller -- and the company's The Daily Beast completed a deal to create a 50-50 joint venture with Newsweek. Meanwhile, Notional created a division focused on original scripted TV content and CollegeHumor partnered with the Nintendo 3DS on 3D comedy videos. IAC's stock rose 48 percent in 2011, sending its market value to $3.4 billion.
