At the blogger meetup I made the bold statement that the only newspaper I read is the New York Times. That didn't sit too well with the dude from Philly.com, but what can you do? I don't really care about the Eagles or Philly politics... so why should I read the Inquirer again (besides when I am in the paper)?
Anywho, after I made that statement I slandered the Times Select, which is the premium (read: you gots to pay to get to) content on the NYTimes.com. That's when Tamara said, “you dumb nerfherder (I'm paraphrasing), since you work at a University you can get the Times Select for free!”
Sure enough, you can! Just gohere and enter an email from an academic institution and you're all set, if is even smart enough to apply to your NY Time username.
