New York Times online is Free! (almost)

New York Times homepage

Apparently, after crunching the numbers, the eggheads at the New York Times finally realized that they could get more revenue from ads, than they could charging for a subscription. Or so the AFP is intimating. Go figure. probably had something to do with the number of stunted deep-link attempts. Way to read your logs, guys! So bye-bye TimesSelect.

And frankly, a welcome turn of affairs. Now I can enjoy all that famous NYT premium content, including select (no pun intended) archived content back to 1981, without having to beg a friend for access to their subscription. Did I just type that?

Anywho… go take a looksee.
