Art After Death

Met my former editor Ian Reeves last night. He is a keen monitor of how newspapers use video on their websites. Ian admires the Last Word feature launched by the New York Times which gets people to record their own obituaries on video before they die. This is best illustrated by the NYT's former columnist Art Buchwald here . There is no reason why other newspapers could not do the same although it must take a lot of tact to approach would-be participants.
