After years of charging for access to parts of the New York Times, the newspaper is now opening up its full online content to the world again–for free!
Starting tomorrow, you won’t need a special subscription to read your favorite columns or archived articles from 1987 to the present. It’s yours for the taking … the linking … the bookmarking.
The Wall Street Journal may soon be free, too. Rupert Murdoch said today he’s leaning toward dropping the subscription fee to increase site traffic and ad revenue. Cool! Maybe something good will come out of his takeover of Dow Jones, after all. I’ll keep you posted.
I know, I’m a dork. But I can’t be the only one. Holla if you love free news!
