NY Times: Free On Line

The New York Times announced today that starting tomorrow it will terminate its TimesSelect service and offer complete access to the paper free of charge. This means that access to NY Times columnists, archives, and other services for which subscribers have paid, will now be free.

Marvelous News for us bloggers. I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to link to a NY Times piece but didn't because of the subscription.

When the NYT first came up with Times Select, it really ticked me off because by that time all I was reading were the op-eds by Paul Krugman and Frank Rich. After TS, you could almost always find these op-eds somewhere but it was an effort. Well, after a few weeks I looked less and less and eventually not at all. Life goes on without Krugman and Rich and I can't say that I miss either of them anymore. Nice going, NYT.
