More tech buck: Viacom eyes Hype Machine??

Hype Machine, the fantastic blog crawler of the new taste making set, is rumoured to be on Sumner Redstone’s shopping list.

The site, which was started and is owned by Anthony Volodkin, aggregates the hottest mp3 blogs, essentially cutting out the arduous task of having to read the associated words.

Gawker-owned gossip site Valleywag reports that Redstone’s Viacom, which owns MTV, has tabled a $10m bid. Viacom boss Philippe Dauman must be careful because the last time one of Redstone’s lieutenants (popular MTV boss Tom Freston) didn’t buy hot web stock (Myspace) he got AXED.
