The New York Times vs The Washington Post
By Mike Rappaport

The Post and the Times are pursuing contrasting strategies. The Times has put its columnists behind a wall, depriving much of the blogosphere of access to their columns. The Post, by contrast, has now started linking its columns to the blogosphere by appending a technorati link, which cites the blogs that are discussing the columns.

We shall see which is the better strategy.

Update: Is it only me, or does the new version of technorati seem significantly worse than the previous one. I see links omitted all of the time.
