I’ve previously blogged about David Carr, the New York Times‘ self-proclaimed “carpetbagger.” He’s a crotchety, knowledgeable kind of guy (just like me). In this brief Root.tv interview, Carr comments on the appeal of integrating video. The footage comes from a panel in which it was noted that 1/3 of all posts from Gawker media embedded video.
Might be interesting to note your own reactions to this post: Are you more moved by this writing, or the moving images above? What’s the best method of conveying information, of providing opinion and analysis? Are we just lazy, and want our news spoon-fed to us, or is it that sound and images appeal to different aspects of the intellect?
