Links Creep In · Roger Sper­berg first no­ticed it, and I don’t know how long it’s been go­ing on; but check out this col­umn by Mau­reen Dowd in the New York Times. Or­di­nary enough, but scroll down and look closer: it has a cou­ple of hy­per­links. One is to an­oth­er NYT sto­ry, but another’s to a piece over at the Wash­ing­ton Post. I won­der who put them in, Ms Dowd or the ed­i­to­ri­al staff? I won­der if there’s a pol­i­cy for what can be linked to and what must be linked to? I won­der if the links are sta­ble or will van­ish be­hind a pay­wal­l?
