Everyday I receive NYT headlines by mail and usually I read one or two articles put in the “top stories”. Generally speaking I think that frontpage articles have to be free. Frontpages are like shop windows. Do you want access to a newspaper on the whole? Pay it! NYT has to lose his influence in the world, that is bad news to journalism.

Classified ads were the lifeblood of print, and Craig’s List destroyed the market.

It will be interesting to see what happens with NYTimes.com, but it irks me when people blame the flight of eyeballs ($0.35/issue) instead of the flight of ads ($100s/ad).
