New York Times to Charge Frequent Readers of Web Site Beginning in 2011

Richard Pérez-Peña, reporting for the NYT:

Starting in early 2011, visitors to will get a certain number of articles free every month before being asked to pay a flat fee for unlimited access. Subscribers to the newspaper’s print edition will receive full access to the site without extra charge.

Romenesko has the memo from Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger.

Count me in with Dave Winer’s take, though:

My opinion, the NYT will never implement the paywall they talked about today. If they were going to do it, they’d just do it.
