BabyBarista balks at the paywall

Tim Kevan has raised two fingers to the Digger and withdrawn the BabyBarista blog from The soon-to-be-paywalled Times, saying:

I didn’t start this blog for it to be the exclusive preserve of a limited few subscribers. I wrote it to entertain whosoever wishes to read it.

BabyBarista is now at and includes cartoons by Times cartoonist Alex Williams.

From its independent blog beginnings, BabyBarista appeared on The Times for over three years which led to a book deal with Bloomsbury: BabyBarista and the Art of War was published as a trade paperback last year. A mass market edition with the new title Law and Disorder is due out in August. Book Two of the BabyBarista Files will also be published by Bloomsbury in 2011.
