Well I think everybody has heard about it already: The New York Post reports that the NYTimes will end the subscription only TimesSelect service. So the NYTimes and it’s archive will be for free again soon!
I will appreciate that so much – as frequent user of the website…

The decision shows that it is hard even for high quality content to get benefit in the paid content market when you try to reach the mass market. Wsj.com is there more successful and it is more in a niche market.
