This is a great -- and long -- story about an IT organization which became very dysfunctional: managing partners, vice-presidents, CIO, employees, all of them were involved in a "virtual nervous breakdown."

If you're fluent in french, you can get some additional services from Le Monde. For a Desk updated several times a day and some image libraries often refreshed, it will cost you 5 euros per month.
Le Monde is taking an unusual route. The online version of the Wall Street Journal has been asking for a yearly payment almost from the start. Many other newspapers, including the New York Times or Le Monde itself, have been free except for access to their archives.
