New York Times uses Canada as beta for US

The email from the NYTimes about its new digital subscription service notes: “Today, we are rolling out digital subscriptions to our readers in Canada, which will enable us to fine-tune the customer experience before our global launch.” [Also here]. Really? The entire nation of Canada is just a beta tester for the US and the rest of the world?

How do you find out what version number is Canada up to, anyway? Click on the maple leaf?

  2. We’ve been (perpetually) beta testing single-payer, publicly funded health care for you guys for decades now. But then again, some countries seem to be satisfied with the “Internet Explorer 6” of health care.
