Should We Still Link to The New York Times?
The New York Times is going to start charging again for access to its articles online. This time it's what's called a "metered model." From the Guardian:
Struggling with an evaporation of advertising and a downward drift in street corner sales, the NYT – motto: "All the news that's fit to print" – intends to introduce a "metered" model at the beginning of 2011. Readers will be required to pay when they have exceeded a set number of its online articles per month.Will you buy access to The New York Times? I will. In fact, I'd happily treat the Times like public radio, which I elect to support because it's an American treasure and an important public service.But should GOOD still link to Times pieces or is that a reader-unfriendly practice now that we might be sending readers to a paywall?Photo from Flickr user wallyg (cc)
