Lots of people on The Times' site wanting to cancel their subscription due the News of the World allegedly hacking into Milly Dowler's mobile.

"Frequently besmirched since it started charging online eight month ago, News International has, as it promised it would, issued a second set of numbers for Times Newspapers’ progress since then [...] It claims 79,000 monthly digital-only subscribers (web, iPad, Kindle)—that’s up 60 percent since a number of 50,000 was disclosed four months ago."

"What is clear is that in some quarters, the idea is growing that - yes - a sale of the Times titles should be the condition of allowing the News Corp-Sky deal through. The well informed suggestion here is that a mixture of some senior Lib Dems and rival newspaper groups are eagerly canvassing the proposal in the hope that the various politicians and regulators would bite on the idea."

"New research from Experian Hitwise has been used by The Guardian to suggests that 54,000 people a month are accessing content behind the paywall of The Times and Sunday Times."

"This blog has been more profitable than Times Online for years, now it also has more readers and more advertisers. Murdoch is making a strategic error on a grand scale…" Guido Fawkes gets the knives out.

"The Times granted Lord Carter about 600 words in which he explained, in soothing faux-expert terms, why the market for access to Internet in the UK was ‘unbalanced’, [...] In translation: “Now, now, Minister. Don’t listen to that geeky Sir Tim Berners-Lee chap. If you want superfast broadband, you’ll have to let telcos ditch net neutrality.” [...] What has he got to gain? The clue comes at the end of the piece: Stephen A. Carter, CBE, is chief strategy and marketing officer for Alcatel Lucent."

Clay Shirky on the Times paywall. Again, refreshingly not about the numbers: "One way to think of this transition is that online, the Times has stopped being a newspaper, in the sense of a generally available and omnibus account of the news of the day, broadly read in the community. Instead, it is becoming a newsletter, an outlet supported by, and speaking to, a specific and relatively coherent and compact audience. (In this case, the Times is becoming the online newsletter of the Tories, the UK’s conservative political party, read much less widely than its paper counterpart.)"

The 57th post I've read about The Times paywall, but only the second which talks about something other than the numbers.

Science experiment: "The Times and Sunday Times had always intended to launch more niche pay-for digital products than just their eponymous websites and iPad apps. Now the first such niche off-shoot is here… [...] But this is a one-off; a 300-page upgrade to Thursday’s 60-page edition - Times Newspapers tells paidContent:uk there won’t be a new edition each month."

Emily has some(t)hing to say on the T(i)mes paywall other than just look at the num(bers): "But take two steps back, and just think about what we are discussing here. These are tiny numbers, and we are discussing them in relation to The Times, or The London Times as it is known on this side of the Atlantic. The Thunderer, the standard bearer for the British press, its best known export and most resonant brand. So what we must know on a macro level is that the influence game for The Times is up."
