Working around paywalls
I notice the Globe and Mail is now limiting how many free article views we get, and heard on the radio that Postmedia plans to expand its paywall across Canada soon and that the Toronto Star will begin paywalling next year.
How a newspaper can benefit from reducing the number of people who see its ads is a mystery to me, but I suppose the bean-counters have made a case for this.
I will continue to find ways to link to relevant news even as my sources try to turn off the taps. Please let me know if I lead you into any blank walls. I’ll be trying not to do that.
