Um, this is the place where I say, "We told you so," to the New York Times. According to the article, the subscription met all expectations, and the new policy of openness is the result of projected advertising revenue. But I have to figure that having their 'opinion leaders' locked behind a subscription wall hurt. You can't be "the paper of record" if people are reading or linking to your content. Anyhow, I'll just take this moment to welcome the New York Times back to the open web. Can the Chronicle of Higher Education be far behind? Via
