Plus ça change

Of course, the saying is really "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" but it looks like sometimes change can actually happen within a corporation, and rather quickly! 

Just days following the New York Times article on unpaid internships that I blogged about over the weekend, Mediabistro reports that Atlantic Media (home of The Atlantic and National Journal) has "decided it will provide pay for all its interns. In fact, the company has decided to retroactively pay last year's interns, worried that their former program fell into a legal 'gray area.'"

Amazing. Let's see if this is where it ends.
