NYT offers TimeSelect free to University students and Faculty.
I like New York Times a lot. My day is rarely complete without reading at least some articles on NYT. Of course most of the time I read online (though in our university we get free print copies every weekday which I read occasionally). Part of the NYT experience are the bi-weekly articles of Krugman, Friedman, Maureen Dowd and others. When TimesSelect was started in Fall 2005, I was so used to their articles that I bought the subscription for one year. But then I realized that most of the articles are available free on the blogosphere. Following the graduate student motto, why pay for it when it's available free, I didn't renew my subscription after the first year.
Today I found that NYT is offering TimesSelect for free to all university students and faculty, which category happily includes me. This surely simplifies things, in addition to comforting my conscience.
