Charging for Content

The NYT will charge for content next year, giving readers a certain number of articles for free and then charging per article from that point.

It's clear that newspapers can't afford to go on as they have, and maybe this is a sensible alternative. The fact is that I read only a handful of pieces each day anyway, so I may fall under the freebie category--unless they charge automatically for op-ed pieces, in which case I'm screwed.
