No more free ST


While I am away in Japan, back home, Singapore Press Holding turned their ST Interactive into a paid service. (via MrBrown).

Heck, who cares!?

Obviously I don’t read ST Interactive; In fact, I seldom even read their printed Straits Time. The fact I got this news via MrBrown blog is a good indication how much their site matters to me.

Few years ago, they screwed up my pobox (aka PostOne) by turning it into a paid service. Obviously they never learn their lesson and they still don’t understand the online culture…

[Okay, maybe I feel a little bit of regret – I help them setup AsiaOne many years ago…in fact, AsiaOne is the second news paper online after NYT and I hate to see them fail. *sigh*]
