You do realize that you can read them if you just play the ad, right? No subscription or registration required.

Free Day Pass. That's 'free' as in beer.

Yeah, all you have to do is watch an ad to read the text.

Not that it matters, I read this article a while ago and it was completly incomprehensible. So densly packed with tangential details it was imposible to find a naritive. It seemed like an intresting subject, but, since the bit on salon was an exceprt, we can assume the rest of the book is just as bad.

I have to agree with delmoi. I just read it and my reading comprehension skills don't totally suck, but I didn't walk away from that article with much.

I like how a Salon link shows up on MeFi every week or so; it's like hearing a faint little heartbeat, each beat reminding me that they're not quite dead yet.
