So, the New York Times is re-considering charging for access:

The editor of The New York Times has hinted that the newspaper might charge again for access to some of its online offerings, less than two years after abandoning fees to boost advertising revenue.

Executive Editor Bill Keller gave no specifics or timetable, and company officials characterized the internal discussions as general and ongoing.

In an online question-and-answer exchange with readers this week, Keller said that although advertising generates the bulk of online revenue, “a lively, deadly serious discussion continues within The Times about ways to get consumers to pay for what we make.”

Well, considering that I read the New York Times on my cellphone for no charge, I’d say their current economic model is unsustainable. I’m not sure charging for content will work, but they’re going to have to do something.
