Seriously, though, in some brave new future world, New York Times reporters might be able to add actual hyperlinks to past articles, thereby deepening one’s understanding of a topic in the way that the Internet has allowed for the last 14 years. I realize that this would mark a major bifurcation between the print and online editions, but that’s coming anyway, right?
