Topix.net and NY Times Announce Deal

Topix.net has made a deal with the New York Times. The AP is reporting that The Times has purchased the right to have some headlines featured on various Topix category pages (aka channels).

The New York Times will have three of its story headlines featured at the top of 80 categories for an undisclosed price. All but a few of the topics are focused on New York City and New York state.

``This is significant because even if you are the biggest and best newspaper on the Web, you still want to increase your audience,'' said Topix CEO Rich Skrenta.

Congrats to Rich Skrenta and the rest of the Topix.net team. As I said a few weeks ago, Topix.net is a resource I visit and use several times a day.
