New York Times columnist and reporter David Carr will present "Hitting the Reset Button" – the 2012 Mary Alice Davis Distinguished Lecture in Journalism. In his lecture, Carr will discuss how mainstream legacy organizations, such as The New York Times, are working to survive in the Digital Age – a topic covered in "Page One: Inside the New York Times." Released in 2011, the documentary follows Carr and his New York Times colleagues for one year.
Carr writes the Media Equation column for The New York Times' Monday Business section, which focuses on issues in print, digital, film, radio and television. He also works as a general assignment reporter for the Times' Culture section and blogs at Media Decoder.
He began working at the Times in 2002 covering the magazine publishing industry for the Business section. Before joining the Times, he was a contributing writer for The Atlantic Monthly and New York Magazine. In 2000 he was the media writer for Inside.com, a news site focusing on the entertainment and publishing industries.
