This article has never appeared in print

The NY Times has started, in the last week or so, to note when an article on nytimes.com has appeared in print. It gives the date, the section, and the page number.

I don’t know what prompted this change, or what good it does, unless you’re trying to put together a bibliography for an academic paper and still think the print edition holds more authority than the web version.

Maybe the Times still thinks that way, too.
