Going backwards

March 1, 2009

Newsday starts charging to read articles.  I’m sure many, if not most, will soon follow.

And the web gets a little less open.

Such a shame.  As I’ve said before, if they offered both free and paid versions side by side they could satisfy the casual one-time reader (and stay in the conversation), while making money off their habitual readers.
