I blogged before about the strange practice of the New York Times to put their content behind paid walls after a certain period. According to the New York Post they have finally figured this out themselves.
“The decision, which also walled off access to archives and other content, was controversial almost from the start, with some of the paper’s own columnists complaining that it limited their Web readership. In July, The Post reported that insiders were lobbying to shut down the service. After two years, however, the move to do away with TimesSelect may have more to do with growth than grumbling inside the paper.”
If the rumour turns out to be true it is still a shame that this ridiculous strategy had to be disproved by the figures first.
