Pictures from my NY Times visit.
I got a tour of the NY Times news room today from Martin Nisenholtz the CEO of NY Times Digital, and Michael Oreskes, Assistant Managing Editor for Electronic News. We also concluded our discussion about the Times archive, we found a good compromise, the archive will remain open to people who link from weblogs, but they will keep the toll booth up for others. We have to hammer out a final statement, which I expect to have in a few days.

BBC: "If you find an e-mail from Bill Gates in your inbox, the chances are that the message is a computer virus."
A couple of hecklers interfered with the end of my OSCOM keynote, so I didn't get to finish the thought. No problem, I just wrote up the idea and a way to implement it.
Amazingly, Glenn Reynolds is still covering the war. Seems like an exercise in futility. In its aftermath, of what use were the warbloggers. A lot of punditry, a lot of furor and outrage, quite a few flames, but what did they actually do other than act important. They got no stories, no new data, they didn't balance the press, which reported the war as if the US was a petty Third World dictatorship. They didn't even out the press. Pheh.
BTW, they still haven't found weapons of mass destruction. That's the big story of the war, imho.
Today's the day, by the way, that the FCC will vote to change the rules on local media ownership.
