For years, people proclaimed that the Internet was going to completely transform media. In 2013, it actually happened. That's the argument of The New York Times media columnist David Carr who delivers the 2013 Dalton Camp Lecture in Journalism at St. Thomas University in Fredericton. He argues that the campfires built by traditional media companies are going out and new methods of content creation and distribution are taking hold.
