The New York Times is (finally!) ridding itself of TimesSelect, which charged for online access to many archival and opinion articles. TimesSelect, which began two years ago, cost $7.95 per month for those who didn't subscribe to NYT. This is certainly good news for the many who like to link to articles and interact with them.
UPDATE: I checked at 12:30 AM on 8/19/07. It appears to be gone.
