Exit, Quickly... Bauer's New Man... Media Theory...

Carol Smith fired from management post at Conde Nast's food group.

MEDIA THEORY: The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta moderated a breakfast panel on social networking at the Bryant Park Grill Thursday morning, where he was joined by Foursquare co-founder Dennis Crowley, Tumblr founder David Karp and new media writer Clay Shirky. As seems standard at such discussions in recent weeks, the hour-long talk made a brief detour into film criticism when the subject of “The Social Network” came up. Crowley said Foursquare’s entire staff saw the movie on a group outing, while Karp said his viewing was a bit of a novel experience.

“It made me want to go to college,” said Karp, who passed on academia to run his microblogging service. Auletta asked if the film’s mix of fact and fiction bothered him. “They killed Hitler in ‘Inglourious Basterds,’” Karp said to laughs. “I don’t know.…Who cares?” — Matthew Lynch
