SYNERGY QUEEN Regan • Shakeups in the tech sector: News Corp.'s Interactive Media president Ross Levinsohn has resigned. He is responsible for pulling MySpace into the embrace of Rupert Murdoch (aka Devourer of Planets, Ravager of Worlds). He will be replaced by his cousin, Peter Levinsohn.

Also flying the corporate coop: Mini blog mogul-turned-AOL executive Jason Calacanis, who resigned yesterday shortly after the announcement that AOL's chief executive Jonathan Miller was being let go.

Judith Regan tells all: The publisher of O.J. Simpson's latest book explains why she was drawn to the Juice's "confession." (Auto summarize: It's personal. Very personal.) She writes her own confession in a newspaper that just so happens to be owned by the same parent company (News Corp.) as her company (HarperCollins), which just so happens to also own the network airing the TV special as well as the news channel that aired that special's biggest critique thus far. Phew. Synergy's exhausting. (Oh, and see Levinsohn/MySpace item above.)

Don't believe us?: The New York Daily News runs a pointed editorial laying out the full extent of News Corp.'s O.J. Simpson business. It's not like they'd have a conflict of interest in this matter.
