Colin recently blogged about The New York Times cancelling their Times Select Service. Since the NYT decided to open, what used to be subscription based content, a whole bunch of interesting NYT accounts have been found and linkloved…here are some interesting articles from the archives of the NYT (not all archive stories are free thou):
The first mention of television (as a concept) in the Times - February 1907, entitled: Sending Photographs via Telegraphs
The first mention of the World Wide Web - February 1993.
“In many cases, retrieving information is much like dialing a bulletin board. A user mails a query to a particular computer address, and the system responds by sending a directory and then providing any specific documents requested.”
