Are you buying into the Times paywall?
By Dave Winer on Monday, March 28, 2011 at 11:30 AM.

A picture named theWall.gifToday is the day I thought would never come -- the NY Times is turning on its paywall for the rest of the world (Canada got it last week).  #

I haven't received a pitch from them, beyond getting a free account for the rest of the year from Lincoln. Not sure who else got that offer. Could be the Times gave that to everyone they thought might be vocally against the paywall? Or might feel the pain and complain publicly?  #

Or maybe they just want me to read their stuff and decided that a little money between friends is kind of crass. (I wish Apple would give me some free hardware on that basis. Often felt I deserved a little shout out from them. What ever.) #

So the big question is -- what are you going to do today?  #
