The New York Times has been a target of ire for the "information wants to be free" sector for a long time, what with its' exclusive electronic distribution deals with subscription-only databases, and its' pay-per-article archive (for most articles, seven days after online publication) that renders much NYT web content opaque to search engines.
Of course, most people have forgotten (or never heard) the other part of the famous Stewart Brand quote: "Information wants to be expensive."
Well, somewhere in the gray zone between free and expensive is RSS. And if you, like me, need your newsjunkie's daily fix of the Gray Lady, and wouldn't mind getting it a little more easily, you'll be equally happy to learn that the Times has got shiny RSS feeds! All ready to plonk into your newsreader. Don't know how I missed this.
That is like, way old. WaPo has 'em, too.
yeah well, what can I say. If I missed it, maybe a few other readers missed it, too!
