    Oh, so still relying on advertising too?

  2. This has been on the cards for some time. I’m curious to see if they go through with the threat to exclude search engines from getting the content – go on I double dare you…

  3. Robert, where’s the advertising you’re referring to?

    I never referred to advertising. Graeme, in these comments, observes there’s a vertical banner on the mock-up. It’s actually for a Times page right now, but there’s no reason to remove advertising. Indeed, it will now be more targetable, and to consumers who actually buy things – http://twitter.com/TomWhitwell/status/11086435203

    Ah that designation as “consumers who actually buy things” as desirable normative status. If only I could purchase that one last item being targeted to me, I could achieve my place as rightful citizen in the world, full of pride that my shiny new covetous object is safely within my grasp. No longer will my peers laugh at me or treat me as a dullard, for I am a consumer just like them, full of verve and zest derived from my pleasure at purchasing something, and belonging to a community full of upright citizens in our modern society. I awake each morn safe and secure, and declare proudly to the world “I buy things.”
