Link journalism at the Times

Wow, I didn't even know this was going on. Scott Karp at Publishing 2.0 says the New York Times Embraces Link Journalism and cites an example of a blog entry at
The Lede that's full of links to other papers.

Is this true of Times stories and other blogs? I usually don't click on Times links because they usually go to Times stories by category. As in this story, about the new Firefox Web browser. The link to Microsoft goes to Times stories on Microsoft, et cetera.

A good sign, especially if it's not just happening at The Lede.....from Karp:
...the Times has clearly gotten over the red herring fear of “sending people away.” The Lede has helped readers make sense of what they read elsewhere, helping to make the Lede more essential than those other source.
