The New York Times is removing the payment barrier from its TimesSelect content. Hooray!
I pundified* incorrectly about this two years ago when they launched TimesSelect -- go look and marvel at my foolishness! Update: Andre points out that this is just a Hail Mary play to win a bet. The Long Bet is broken anyway, because it presumes a blogs-vs-Times model, which of course isn't accurate.
* "Pundify" is to pontificate without the burden of facts and in full embrace of intellectual dishonesty.
