PRSA Digital Impact Conference – Day 2

Just heard the keynote speaker, New York Times’ David Carr. If you ever have a chance to hear him speak, do not miss it. He’s a paradigmatic journalist and yet as contemporary in his knowledge and outlook as they come. He also has a brilliant, dry sense of humor that will keep you laughing while you’re being educated. It’s a rapid-fire experience – knowledge, insight, levity – all coming at you via a deceptively understated, deadpan delivery. I think the fact that this journalist’s journalist is also the Internet’s “Carpetbagger” captures the conundrum that is David Carr
