ashton kutcherkevin rose giveupinternet.com | Taken from CNET: “What a pairing: Hollywood slacker-hottie icon Ashton Kutcher and Silicon Valley slacker-hottie icon Kevin Rose have teamed up to create 24 Hours at Sundance, a Web-based reality show set at the eponymous film festival in Park City, Utah, later this week.

Backed by mobile live-streaming start-up Qik, the competition-focused show will pit four “social media mavens” against one another for 24 straight hours as they complete a set of challenges surrounding the annual film festival and broadcast them via Qik software on Nokia handsets. Rose (best known for founding Digg) and Kutcher, the Dude, Where’s My Car actor whose production company Katalyst Media has created a Web show called Blah Girls, will co-host.

The four “social media mavens” are VentureBeat editor Matt Marshall, gadget blogger Meghan Asha, Konsole Kingz founder CJ Peters, and video blog personality Irina Slutsky.

Give Up Internet‘s Note: It won’t be that easy for Ashton to follow what’s going on at “geek speed”.  Maybe it can be good but “Rhythm”.

Spence E.Ante, from Business Week, wrote and article about Digg and the whole Web 2.0 Media Blogs covered that story. The reason behind this business fail is Microsoft and Microsoft really freezed Digg’s advertising strategies with tons of useless banner ads. It’s a three years of contract.  I know that Microsoft paid good money. If not, Microsoft should give up internet, if they paid good money but Digg Guys can’t manage it well, digg guys should give up internet. If there is something secret that we don’t know and we go on talking around rumors, we should give up internet.
