I read this story last week [0], now went back to look for it and it was gone. I did some googling but couldn't figure out what happened to it. Anyone knows?

p.s. of course the wayback machine has it[1], my question is why it's not hosted at the origin anymore

0: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19006477 1: https://web.archive.org/web/20190204130938/https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2019/01/25/us/ap-cybersecurity-undercover-operatives.html

It's probably a licensing issue, and NY Times can't share AP articles for more than a week or something.

They link to this story directly on AP site in a followup story (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/28/world/black-cube-nso-citi... links to https://apnews.com/9f31fa2aa72946c694555a5074fc9f42)

info management i think. the political outfall is probably not a good taste for NYtimes. this is still around though:


What is “info management”?
