Huge: TimesSelect, RIP

You heard it here first: From this day forth, the New York Times will be free in its entirety online. This is a big deal not only for consumers of news, but for bloggers and readers of blogs, because the opinion articles written for the Times can now become part of the blogosphere. So often you see bloggers mention something they wanted to talk about but are unable to because of the TimesSelect wall. Now those ideas will be able to bounce about the Internets and copulate with the minds of all who would bear them children, bastard or otherwise. Hooray!

Hear, hear. Screw them for keeping us out so long. I want my David Brooks!

Now we just need to collectivize their web servers and printing presses, and it might truly be freedom of the press.
