Why Greggy Can't Read

So I've been writing a few pieces for The New York Times lately, which is great, but I can't read them. Or almost any stories at the nytimes.com site, for that matter. Whenever I click on a NYT link, the login screen pops up, then refuses to log me in because my browser (Mozilla) doesn't accept cookies.

The problem first popped up [sic] a few months ago when the Times hired a Utah research/survey firm to monitor user activity via their own cookies, which were rejected by my Moz "accept cookies only from the originating server" restrictions.

But lately, even after I thought I'd already laid back and thought of England, cookie-wise, I've still been rejected. Turns out that I still had the "cookies expire after 90 days" setting , and the Times wanted to place one 6-month, three 1-year, and one 10-year cookie in my browser.

To which I can only say, "Um, yes ma'am?"

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
