NY Post suggests TimesSelect will close

leave a comment »

The NY Post is reporting that TimesSelect, the subscription wall in front of much of the New York Times is to be dismantled.

Cue a renewed debate on the fine balance between making enough money by charging a subscription, or getting the material out there free and amass an audience large enough to sell to an advertiser.

However, Wired’s Adario Strange suggests taking this news with a pinch of salt.

I must be addicted to Facebook

with one comment

Facebook is down this morning. And that’s annoying me. And I’m annoyed that it’s annoying me, because that means that FB has become important to me. And I dislike the thought of being dependant on a website 😦

What’s interesting, and I’m not the only person to have this problem is that my Facebook presence seems to have vanished, lets hope temporarily.

I can’t get in, and I can’t reset my password and one friend even rang to ask if I had deleted myself because ‘you’re not there anymore!’
