Social Me This!: Social|Median Moves Toward Beta Phase With New Round of Investors

SocialMedian1.jpgHave you heard? Social networking is all the rave (along with tumblrs and twitters). The Times launched TimesPeople last month, and rumor has it that Wired‘s Chris Anderson has something in the works. But it doesn’t end there! The Deal is reporting that Social|Median, the social news service founded by former Jobster.com CEO Jason Goldberg may be one step closer to launching.

The site, currently in its alpha stage, is described as being a “new type of hyper-personalized social news service,” (perhaps a combination of Facebook and Digg?) and is hoping to go beta in the next few weeks. Over the last few months it has picked up a number of high profile media investors, including former Federal Communications Commission chairman Reed Hundt, Julius Genachowski, the co-founder of LaunchBox Digital, the Washington Post Co.’s Allen Morgan, and most recently L. Gordon Crovitz, who stepped down as publisher of The Wall Street Journal in January (maybe Bonnie Fuller‘s invite got lost in the mail?). Hopefully we’ll be able to give it a whirl and get back to you.

NBC Protects Ashton Kutcher From Nosy Journos

evu_ashton_kutcher_05.jpg

NBC’s scheduling a press conference for the new reality series The Real Wedding Crashers, and just to get the hi-jinks rolling, sent out a beaut of a memo:

An in person PRESS CONFERENCE has been scheduled for Friday, March 16 Pacific time from 11 a.m. -12 p.m. for our new unscripted series”The REAL Wedding Crashers” which will premiere in April. A simultaneous conference call has been scheduled so that out of town press may also may have the opportunity to partipate. Questions will be taken from in person journalists as well as from press on the phone. Please do not ask Ashton Kutcher any “personal” questions.

FBLA wonders just what constitutes a “personal” question:

Q. Does Demi every forget and call you “Bruce”?
Q. How much are you making from this show?
Q. Is your movie career basically over?

Ray Richmond wants to know:
Q.Do you ever want to change your name to something non-Ashton?
Q.Why can’t I ask you any personal questions?
Q.Any fatherhood claim to Anna Nicole’s baby?

Are personal questions for Gareth Reynolds, Ben Gleib and Jason Goldberg okay? Do they know that?
