An Instagram image of a surly A-Rod graces the NYT homepage right now.

I look at this image and all I see are pictures of people jumping over sharks.

Most interesting way to reveal a new album title: Put it in the New York Times classifieds’ “Notices & Lost and Found” category, to ensure nobody ever sees it — unless, like Vampire Weekend, you drop hints.

Today in hackings originating from China: The New York Times. The hacking incident began after The Times started working on this story about Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao’s fortune. Every Times employee had their corporate password stolen, and 53 employees had their personal computers infiltrated, mostly outside of the office. So yeah, kind of a big story.

The front of today’s New York Times Sports section.

The NYT is just throwing negative space and reverse boxes all over the place these days. Also, this tiny paper already beat them to this trick.

More than a year and a half later, it’s clear the New York Times’ paywall is not only valuable, it’s helped turn the paper’s subscription dollars, which once might have been considered the equivalent of a generous tithing, into a significant revenue-generating business. As of this year, the company is expected to make more money from subscriptions than from advertising — the first time that’s happened.
Bloomberg’s Edmund Lee • Discussing the success of the New York Times paywall, which has done something very surprising — it’s allowed the New York Times to make more than half of its overall revenue from subscriptions, rather than the traditional 80 percent advertising/20 percent subscriptions balance that has traditionally defined newspapers. That’s good for a number of reasons, with the biggest being that the New York Times is no longer as overly reliant on ad dollars to sell its news. That’s an awesome spot for the Times to be, but the real question: Does that mean anything for papers that aren’t the Times, which may be a tougher sell than a paper of record?

Sunday’s New York Times front page does something the paper of record has rarely, if ever, done before: It leads with a black box rather than an image, with zero photos taking up the top half of the page. It also downplays the suspect significantly. (ht @thomaskaplan)

Last week ‘The Onion’ said I was going to become a male stripper. … ‘The Onion’ is probably more accurate than Tom Friedman.
Education secretary Arne Duncan • Responding to Thomas Friedman’s bizarre column suggesting Duncan was the perfect candidate to become the next Secretary of State — by citing the second most surprising thing written about him recently. Duncan wins on the sense-of-humor front.
