David Carr Will Be Missed as a Media and Culture Commentator

I will bet there are few historical documentaries as interesting and accurate as Participant Media's, Page One: Inside the New York Times, which chronicles the changes to the industry brought by the Internet. 

The other reason for loving this documentary is getting to know David Carr, the Time's reporter whose beat was the media. His story is amazing in its own right.

David Carr passed away yesterday, in the newsroom where he spent most of his career. I call that dying "with your boots on," which is the way I would hope to pass from this world onto the "next edition."
