Encyclopaedia salesman

The Encyclopaedia Britannica are offering a free service to “web publishers” (they hand check, so some posho from a Public School in their office must have had to have a look at this site) where they can use the online version for nothing. You can also get links to each page to share on your site so non-subscribers can see too – therefore I present the page on Brum (you’ll learn nothing new):Birmingham.

A lot more interesting was that Miguel de Cervantes died today in Madrid in 1616.

    How do they fit a public school in their office?

    Ah Encyclopaedia Britannica’s final death throes – just to prove they have lost the fight already they decide to emulate their competitor Wikipedia. Wikipedia wouldn’t make such a good <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsvWVbBowXo&quot; rel="nofollow">Monty Python sketch</a> though!
