RIP: Encyclopedia Britannica

Encyclopedia Britannica,  published since 1768, announced yesterday that it's  going all digital and will cease publication of its 32-volume printed encyclopedia. Inevitable, I know. But fond memories for me and all other childhood bookies: lying on the floor of my childhood home and paging through the volumes just to be surprised by all the facts. A kingdom of wonder right there.
