Rachel Metz: Wired News: We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Login

There’s also The New York Times link generator put together by an Illinois teen computer programmer, Aaron Swartz. Swartz’s page lets bloggers post links to Times articles that can be viewed without having to log in to the site.

So far, he’s gotten a lot of positive feedback, Swartz said.

“People say, ‘Oh, I use it all the time,’” he said.

Oh, I use it all the time! Your app makes the nyt a huge favor, as it is, since it allows it to show content despite their absurd subscription policy.
