Who's Going to Buy The New York Times's New Opinion App?

When The New York Times announced its new mobile app,
NYT Now, in April, it did more than release a new piece of software to
the world. It proposed a new media schedule for would-be users: With
time-pegged briefings for the morning and evening, a human-picked
selection of stories from the website, and a list of interesting news
stories from other sites, it made sense of the daily deluge of Times content.
For some users—for me—the schedule stuck. Like the designer Craig Mod, I’ve “opened NYT Now multiple times a day, everyday, since the day it was released.”
