Free archives? Maybe, but not yet

Lots of blogosphere discussion about the merits of open and free archives versus locked, pay-per-view archives.

Simon Waldman has been an advocate, arguing that permanence builds value and credibility. It has worked for The Guardian, of which Waldman is director of digital publishing. (He'd know, in other words.)

OJR's Mark Glaser has a good wrap of the issues.
