It’s time for a new episode of OMG/JK, the weekly show where my colleague MG Siegler and I talk about the latest news in tech.

We both just got back from South By Southwest, and we have plenty to say about the promotions, product launches, and other news (or lack thereof) that came out of one of year’s biggest tech events.

We also take a look at the new paywall that will soon be implemented by The New York Times — a move that many other publishers are watching closely as they look for new revenue streams.

Finally, we talk about Twitter’s move to discourage the development of more third-party Twitter clients, which has led to significant backlash from the developer community.

Here are some recent stories relevant to this week’s episode:
