The tech that NY Times (as a software architect in the mobile internet) is beyond fantastic. You should be proud of what you provided, and further more you should look at seeing what you can do to help smaller paper and regional papers with their tech offering.
I support local paper (print) and have a kindle paper delivered so I am all in with supporting papers.
As for the NY Times, I wish the editorial staff would do a better job. They lost their neutrality, and if the government flips, they do have a chance to reclaim it by being as ferocious against the DNC and their systems.
But you …. you did fantastic work and made reading the Times whether on email, kindle, or the web A++ ….. it sucked stepping away from the subscription, but I look forward to the day when I can do it again.
