The Times paywall of death
hat-tip Guido for the title. The paywall has gone up, and I am a Times reader so I miss reading some of it on my BlackBerry. I shall especially miss Oliver Kamm's column. I would not previously have considered paying for this kind of content on line, but now I have my iPad (did I mention that before?) it will be a joy to read. So, yes, probably. I doubt the Murdoch empire thought about the iPad effect when they started all this, but I am sure I am not alone. Guido thinks the paywall will kill off the readership. I do not agree.
