Learning Emerging Media

Tip for Paid Content

Posted by emac3326 on September 4, 2006

If you are ever searching the web and stumble upon an article you want to read — but lo and behold it’s from a content subscription site like the Wall Street Journal or Economist — get the name of the article and run a Technorati search. Chances are someone out there has an account, linked to the full article, or has a download available, and you can get the article you need at no cost. Of course, this does not work every time, but it’s not bad. If you find yourself using one of these sites frequently, consider subscribing, or having your office subscribe, but for one-off stuff, why pay $80 a year for one article?
