We've already pointed out how the NY Times' "paywall," which says it's okay if you click from any other site rather than the NY Times' own site, appears to harm the NY Times and help competitors, and it seems some competitors are stepping up into the breach. The Atlantic, which has embraced the internet, perhaps like no other old school publication, has now started highlighting which NY Times stories you might want to read each day. And, since you're coming from The Atlantic, you can read those articles without having to pay the paywall master. In other words, the Atlantic now provides a better front page to the NY Times than the NY Times does itself.
