The aim is to help businesses who want to make more profit from the service.

VentureBeat: If the New York Times dies, does the news die?

Chris Morrison contemplates what would be left behind in the wake should the mighty New York Times fall.

“Most people, including internet journalists, agree that print is the last bastion of the educated essay and the investigative article, he writes.”

NYTimes.com will stream content from three technology sites ‘very soon’

In the latest of the newspaper site online deals (it’s difficult to go a day without one it seems), Readwriteweb, GigaOM and VentureBeat will supply the NYTimes.com newly re-designed technology section with content.

ReadWriteWeb announced on its blog yesterday that over the coming weeks we will start to see ReadWriteWeb content appearing on the section’s front.

“This is great news for us”, ReadWriteWeb’s founder Richard McManus writes, “because it brings our brand of web technology news, reviews and analysis to a much wider audience.

“It also means that the innovative and often little known startups we write about daily get a chance to be seen in a mainstream publication. The New York Times has a reputation for quality and in-depth journalism, attributes that we strive for on ReadWriteWeb – so we’re excited about this partnership.”

Beet TV produced a video interview with Vindu Goel, deputy technology editor at the NY Times.

GigaOM have written about it here, while Vindu Goel blogs about the decision on the NY Times site: he promises ‘a steady stream of content from three of the most respected tech blogs on the Web’ very soon.
