In a post down below I mused on how 'my mate Rupe' was getting on with his paywall which now encircles The Times and 'The Screws of the World'. I mentioned then that no figures seemed to have been released and so we would only be able to judge its efficacy by how his competitors re-acted. Today, I read in the FT that 'Her Majesty's Daily Torygraph' is now planning to hide behind a wall beginning next summer but in this case it will not, unlike Rupe's Berlin Wall-type blockade, be a total lock out. It will, in a similar way to the FT, provide headlines and partial viewing of some stories. I can live with that because if a story is important enough someone somewhere will be printing the whole thing - even if it is Mr. Assange! Worth reading that report in the FT.
ADDITIONAL: Guido has picked up the story too and admits his surprise because, according to him, not only has The Times lost 95% of its on-line traffic but its paper sales have gone down as well!
