David Carr Dead at 58

David Carr, media columnist at The New York Times, died yesterday in Manhattan. Interesting story here. Former drug addict, cancer survivor, alternative journalist joins the Times in 2002 as a business reporter and soon becomes the "gold standard" for insightful reporting on modern media and the digital era. He was a fantastic writer and a keen observer of things.

Nice pieces (here and here) on Carr in today's Times. I will really miss his Media Equation column. And his croaky voice and acerbic wit. Sigh. [NOTE: Image credit to Magnolia Pictures].
