Business Models, Oil Prices

How to View NYT columnists for free (legally!)

Jay Rosen writes about business models and Time Select. I’m a little more positive about subscription services like this one. Nick Kristof actually kept a pretty good weblog at the same time he was writing his columns. Krugman or Dowd may not exactly be A columnists, but Friedman and Kristof certainly were. I would probably pay $30 for columnists only (no archives), but that’s just me.

Salon’s solution of “subscription means no ads” is a good compromise.
