    It has been more than a year since The New Yorker took down its paywall and triggered a frenzied run on its archives. Slate and others compiled lists of The New Yorker’s greatest hits, encouraging readers to take in the magazine’s ruminative nonfiction before the paywall came back up.

    The announcement comes more than a month after Google debuted Accelerate Mobile Pages, or AMP, a proposed Web standard that imposes constraints on the bulkier elements of Web design to ensure that pages load quickly. AMP was greeted at launch by a mixture of applause and hand-wringing from digital media experts, who alternatively hailed the measure as a much-needed remedy for sluggish mobile article pages or an effort from Google to dictate how the Web should be configured.
