The upcoming New York Times paywall is causing a bit of an uproar all over the place. But I haven't much paid attention to it because of an email which said that "as a valued home delivery subscriber, you’ll get our All Digital Access package — which includes unlimited access* to NYTimes.com and the NYTimes app for your smartphone and tablet — free." As for the asterisk, it says "*Mobile apps are not supported on all devices. Does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps. Other restrictions apply."
But that's enough for me.
We get the weekend papers only, and it looks as if in my area it's available for $3.15 per week.
If we didn't want the paper weekend edition it would be a different matter, but now you know why, while it's academically important to most of the world, I don't much care about this big todo at the moment.
Copy of the email follows.
