There’s probably more to it than this, but it seems NYT hasn’t made up its mind whether its online presence ought to become (because it still is not) a global must-read experience, or atrophy as a stodgy parochial news massage parlor which potential readers may as well live without. At the rate NYT’s been going, by the time they’ve found their stride it may be too late.

But please don’t encourage people to use that scourge of my existence Scribd!

Obviously, they have a headstart, and they get the documents first. But right now it’s pretty clear that the NYT will never publish anything more about say that Wal-Mart memo. If bloggers or anybody else can find new and interesting stuff in it, they should be able to. And every time they do, they’ll credit the NYT for finding it. Everybody wins.
