The Future of The New York Times

Two articles this week tackle the future of the newspaper of record.

In this New York Times article, David Carr proposes the idea of inventing an iTunes for news where people would pay for only the pieces they want to read, without the distraction of advertising.

In this New York Magazine article Emily Nussbaum profiles the young renegades who are transforming the Grey Lady into a 21st century experiment in information sharing. Anyone who is curious about how the New York Times might manage to survive should check them out.
