Newspapers Form New Century Network

The New York Times announced it would join eight other newspaper publishers in the New Century Network, with the goal of linking local online news services into a national network on the World Wide Web. The popularity of online news has grown along with the Web itself. Now, The New York Times and many other newspapers publish their entire content online every day.
