New York Times online erects paywall

The New York Times online version, which used to be free, has begun charging subscription fees; the reasoning and the methodology was explained on Monday in a letter to the readers from publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. Currently they only have a single-subscriber pricing model available, with various permutations that are explained on their FAQ page.  The Christian Science Monitor (ironically) has a clearer description of the available options as well as discussion of how the move is being viewed by media scholars and others.
