Read all about it in the New York Times while you still can, you moocher:
The New York Times rolled out a plan on Thursday to begin charging the most frequent users of its Web site $15 a month in a bet that readers will pay for news they have grown accustomed to getting free.
Beginning March 28, visitors to NYTimes.com will be able to read 20 articles a month without paying, a limit that company executives said was intended to draw in subscription revenue from the most loyal readers while not driving away the casual visitors who make up a vast majority of the site’s traffic.
Sounds like there will be a bunch of ways to beat the paywall, though, as you will still be able to access full articles through links on Twitter and Facebook even if you've passed your 20-articles-a-month limit. TechCrunch points out that the Times is discriminating against certain devices with their new tiered payment plan. If you access the paper through a cell phone app, you pay $15 a month, but if you're on a tablet, it's $20. I hope there's some research to back this up, that tablet users are less likely to click through on ads or something like that. Otherwise, that's just stupid.
