Yahoo has purchased the crowd-sourced content company Associated Content.  Kara Swisher puts the price tag for the company at $90 million cash.

Earlier this year, I interviewed Associated Content CEO Patrick Keane about the company's operation and growth. 

The site relies on some 350,000 "citizen journalists" who contribute to the site.  Many call this crowd-source content play as "content farm."  Great piece on this sector in The Economist titled "Emperors and Beggars."

We have republished the interview today.
