New York Times subscriptions

Well-said at Crooked Timber.

From John Quiggin at Crooked Timber:

As a blogger, there’s no point in paying for something if you can’t link to it. That’s why the WSJ is so thoroughly marginalised in the blog world. So unless the NYT finds a way around this, they’ll be cutting themselves off from one of the most active parts of the public debate, and missing out on quite a few potential readers.

Amen.

Although, there are a couple of comments there that make reasonable arguments for why people ought to consider paying, and also presenting some alternative business models that the NYT should consider.
