New York Times unblocks

As predicted by several commentators the New York Times will stop charging for access to the Times Select portions of their website effective at midnight tomorrow.

For me and many thoughtful progressives - the most important part of this news is that the columns of Paul Krugman will now be available for free. I've already added him to my blogroll in anticipation.

Yet another nail in the coffin of traditional cash flow models for the Internet.

UPDATE: To all my new visitors from Australia, (Crikey, but there's a lot of you.) thanks for dropping by and feel free to check out the rest of the blog.
