yay! timesselect to be phased out

7 Aug

From cnet: –

Citing anonymous sources, The New York Post has reported that fellow Manhattan paper The New York Times is planning to do away with “Ti mesSelect,” the subscription-only content on its NYTimes.com Web site. According to the article by Holly M. Sanders, the main obstacle at the moment is re-configuring the site’s software.

Excellent. I used to love reading the NYT Op-Eds, especially Tom Friedman, Frank Rich, and Bush-basher-extraordinaire, Maureen Dowd. However, I have no intention of paying for online content – such is the deluge of freely-available reading materials on the web, as I explained here.
