Steve Gillmor on NYT link changes

Steve Gillmor on NYT link changes: "The New York Times has broken its permalinks, at least practically if not officially. Permalinks work up to a week back, then poof."

Apparently the NYT has decided to charge for access to articles that are more than a week old. Steve suggested the RSS links may be treated differently, but I'm not eager to manually cross-reference articles I read via the Web with their RSS counterparts. Hopefully the genius MBA at the NYT who implemented this policy will soon realize it entails a very high opportunity cost and will undo it.
