"We have been a big proponent of open source for many years. We are active contributors to the open source community. We use open source in our database and certainly our operating system and many of the tools that we've built or deployed or adapted over the years, and we contribute back to that community. In fact, for our content management system, which we built in-house, the editing framework is an open source framework, which we worked with the open source community and then gave back, so it's a tool that is customized for the New York Times that anybody can use."
