How to Get Around the Boston Globe Wall

The free trial of the new BostonGlobe.com pay-site has ended, so if you want to get behind that wall, it’ll cost you $3.99 a month.

Somewhat.

As noted in what I put together after last month’s Nieman Lab event, the wall is going to be a little leaky and the Globe brass are ok with that. With that in mind, here’s a few things to consider when you need access to content:

  • Google News is your friend. This has long been a trick when you need access to a Wall Street Journal article: copy the name of the article, search for it in Google News. Once the result comes up, click the link and the full article will be there.
There will be other hacks. I’m going to keep thinking about them.
