Seven Days is publishing their archives

Local alt-weekly Seven Days is in the process of re-publishing their archives:

We’re starting with 2001, and working our way back. We’ll also be filling in the holes in 2002-2007. If you want to check our progress, click on the Search/Index page of our site, scroll to the bottom, and click to the last page of results. Those are the oldest stories, and they’re getting older all the time.

It certainly won’t approach the scale or depth of the material recently released by the New York Times, but I like to think this is representative of the direction papers are moving in. After all, they could have put it behind a pay wall. This is also a significant move on the part of a publication that is such a big part of the community and local culture. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of the Seven Days “vault”.
