Starting this week until fall:

Beginning this week, absolutely everything new that we publish—the work in the print magazine and the work published online only—will be unlocked. All of it, for everyone. Call it a summer-long free-for-all. Non-subscribers will get a chance to explore The New Yorker fully and freely, just as subscribers always have. Then, in the fall, we move to a second phase, implementing an easier-to-use, logical, metered paywall. Subscribers will continue to have access to everything; non-subscribers will be able to read a limited number of pieces—and then it’s up to them to subscribe.

The New Yorker

In case anyone is interested.

(Moving to General Discussion to give wider distribution. Some never go into OT and just in case any sailors are interested.)

Magazines face a real challenge. People just don't want to pay for content online and the returns from ad revenue just aren't there...

It might have broad interest, but I don't get how its sailing related.

Sorry you don't like it. I suppose I was thinking about those who live aboard and prefer digital magazines and electronic books to save space. Since a regular NYer subscription can be pricey, it's a chance to read it, along with some of the iconic writing gems in the archives.

Donna, I didn't say I don't like it. I've just noticed a fair amount of subjectivity on what gets banned to OT and then see this pulled out. Not trying to make a big deal of it.
