By Out.com Editors
Chairman and Senior Executive, IAC/InterActiveCorp, 71
Shuttering the print edition of Newsweek this past year wasn’t necessarily a high point for Diller, but he forged ahead with a promising e-publishing venture (partnering with Scott Rudin, ex-Picador executive Frances Coady, and the Atavist’s Evan Ratliff) set to challenge Amazon, who currently reports 65% of all e-book sales. Diller also invested $20 million in Aereo, a browser- and tablet-supported TV platform that severely undercuts the traditional cable model and will expand to dozens of major U.S. cities this year.
