Submission + - New York Times to be More Quotable?

warren_spencer_1977 writes: Slashdotters are often loathe to quote, or ,provide a link to a New York Times article, since one must be a paid subscriber to see most of their interesting stuff. Pisses off us freedom-loving geeks, it does.

But today the Red Herring is running an article on the end of paid service (no word on requiring a membership, though). From the article:

The Post, citing a source briefed on the matter, said a decision had been made by top Times executives. The timing of when the service would become free depends on technical issues, including revamping the software surrounding that section of the site, according to the Post report.

I'm quite sure the New York Times is just trying to get better citations on Slashdot, but could there be other motives at work here?
