Encyclopedia Britannica ends print, goes digital

Encyclopedia Britannica ends print, goes digital

The writing was on the wall for this one for several years now.

I grew up in an age where parents invested in an encyclopedia set at home to give their children an advantage when they were doing their homework.

Today the Internet and various tools have nullified the benefit of having a set of books on hand.

If anything static text can't keep up with the dynamic changes in this fast pace world.

At the same time - no printed book has ever gotten infected with a virus that kept it from booting up.
