How to Turn Off Lancaster New Era Obit Paywall


A tipster to my blog discovered an easy way to get around the Press+ paywall, which recently launched on the Lancaster Online obits page: Turn off JavaScript.

I tested this on several browsers yesterday, and sure enough. It works.

LancasterOnline has not yet responded to my inquiry, but this morning, David Brauer of MinnPost received a reply. Basically, LancasterOnline is not worried. Obit readers and the tech savvy do not meet in their Venn diagram of online readership, they say.

While this may be true, anyone who plans to use Press+ to make money should be aware of the easy methods for circumventing the tool that’s meant to bring in extra revenue and take into account what kind of hit your profit plans could take, should people get the hang of changing a setting or applying a script.

NYT Data Journalist Walks Through ‘Toxic Waters’


The New York Times investigation into national water quality and pollution regulation required a tremendous effort in reporting and data analysis. The project, titled “Toxic Waters,” was enhanced by the painstaking efforts of many in the newsroom, including journalist-developer Derek Willis, a member of NYT’s Interactive News Technology team.

He described how the Times produced its award-winning series to members of the Online News Association and Hacks & Hackers in Washington yesterday. Above is the recording of his presentation.

(Note: I’m an active member of both organizations.)
