NY Times Paywall -- reprise

I did some experiments this afternoon. I'm pretty sure it's cookie-based, as I thought it would be.

'Nuff said.

For what it's worth, I just found Cory Doctorow's analysis/prediction of what the paywall would be, posted on the same day as mine. True to form, he came up with a much darker, deeper, hacker-oriented set of possibilities for how the paywall might work, but makes some of the same points as I did.
