Bad Day For The NY Times

Via “Gadgetopia”:http://www.gadgetopia.com/post/4332 word that the NY Times is going to a mostly subscription model. “Dave Winer”:http://www.scripting.com/ wins.

By the way if you haven’t read “Winer’s argument”:http://www.longbets.org/2 in favor of Blogs for the Long Bet do so now, some pretty prescient stuff from 2002 as far as I’m concerned.

bq(quote). My bet with Martin Nisenholtz at the Times says that the tide has turned, and in five years, the publishing world will have changed so thoroughly that informed people will look to amateurs they trust for the information they want.

In other NY Times news, This Is Broken “shows”:http://www.thisisbroken.com/b/2005/09/nyt_pointer_to_.html the Times needs more editors – they calling us dummies!
