Goodbye Atlantic Online...

The past few years have likely been the golden age of the internet. Wide open unregulated access with the tripe of the earlier years relegated to oblivion and the remaining success stories those who offer quality content and user-friendly sites.

For a person who loves to read it has been like a dream come true. Unlimited volumes of free books, newspapers and online magazines provide endless hours of entertainment and education.

Alas, the growing trend, and arguably rightfully so, is for more and more of the free newspapers and magazines to move to some form of paid subscription.

The latest one to fall is one of the better ones regarding the quality of pieces they provide and the spectrum of political views that are explored. Mainstream to be sure, but one of the best in that category.

R.I.P. The Atlantic Online free access...
