New York Times to begin charging for online access: On March 28th, the NY Times will institute a pay wall and begin charging frequent readers of its content for online access via digital subscriptions. If they are successful and other content providers follow suit, the economic landscape of online content will change. How will this affect SpoFi and the linking to online content? When more online content sources have pay walls, SpoFi members may be able to continue following links to content without having to pay for the access, but will this coming transition end up imposing restrictions and/or an economic burden on SpoFi itself?

RIP Mosi Tatupu: Former Patriots' stalwart Mosi Tatupu passed away earlier today. He was a fan favorite during his playing days. One of the most remarkable things about Tatupu was that, despite his Pacific island background, he was one of the Pats' best winter weather players. Somehow he almost always managed to keep his feet under him, even in blizzard conditions. Condolences to Lofa and family.
