The Rules of the Online Game

Called me unsurprised that The New York Times is mulling putting the web version of its newspaper on a paid subscription basis similar to The Wall Street Journal. If this happens, what will the WaPo and the LAT do? A chess game between newspapers may ensue. And what will this mean for blogs? It may be another opportunity for us, if we can find ways to finance and thus expand our endeavors while remaining a free portal to the news.
