The New York Times Opens Its Archives

The New York Times has finally figured out that it’s in their best interest to make their newspaper articles available to the public. As of a week or two ago, they’re no longer charging a fee for their “premium” content. Now anyone can read columnists such as Paul Krugman online without having to subscribe.

They’ve opened up their archive, too. Jason Kottke put together a nice little list of some Gems from the archive of the New York Times, including a front-page report of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and a report on the confirmation of Einstein’s theory of gravity in 1919. Enjoy!
