New York Times goes free and open up their archives

Finally another one catch-it up ! I laughed a bit specially reading this part of the article :
“What wasn’t anticipated was the explosion in how much of our traffic would be generated by Google, by Yahoo and some others,” Ms. Schiller said.
They will be suprised a lot in a few month if I compare this to a small newspaper from Montreal who I managed to make their archives really easy to crawl with a bit of SEO. The traffic from Google grew from 4,000 UV/month to around 600,000/month !
