Changes At The Atlantic Monthly Online

Taking a page from The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly has decided to put up a subscription/pay-wall in front of their archives. How soon the pay-wall is erected is not yet clear, but all those great Charles Mann articles on digital copyright (Who Will Own Your Next Great Idea and The Heavenly Jukebox) definitely are no longer generally available online.

I learned this from a student at Cambridge University, who is ambitiously already working on the reading list for lectures several weeks away. For the moment, I’ve come up with a short term solution but, in the long term, I’m clearly going to have to make some serious (and unfortunate) revisions to my reading list.

A shame
