Pretty soon now ("Beginning March 28"), the NYT will be demanding your money if you want to read more than a few of their articles. But don't worry! They're going after the worst of the worst first:
The 20-article limit begins immediately for readers accessing NYTimes.com from Canada …
Ken Layne simply does not care for this new plan, although he does not say how he feels about Canadians.
Ken does do us a solid by pointing to Juli Weiner. She has lots of helpful advice, including a link to a page on the NYT's site that shows you how many articles you have recently stolen …
... and she also provides the endings to all those articles that you soon will only be able to read the beginnings of, while you are hunched in a corner of your dark kitchen, eating cold gray spaghetti with a pair of tweezers.* Highly recommended.
* Even if you are not named Oscar Madison.
[Added] Felix Salmon has a thorough post on the matter.
