Xeni on The Madeleine Brand radio show: NYT paywall debut, and US censorware in mideast (audio)


I joined host Madeleine Brand today on her eponymously-named radio program for a segment on two tech-related headlines of the week: first, the New York Times paywall, which went live earlier today. The new subscription model purports to limit readers to 20 articles per month, but that doesn't include front page items, or pages you visit through a Facebook or Twitter link, and so on. Separately, we spoke about the OpenNet Initiative report on American- and Canadian-made censorware used by governments in the mideast to squelch political speech. Listen here.
