In an effort to compete with Wikipedia, the de facto standard for bloggers, Encyclopaedia Britannica has launched Webshare…
Here’s a quote from the site:
A special program for web publishers, including bloggers, webmasters, and anyone who writes for the Internet. You get complimentary access to the Encyclopaedia Britannica online and, if you like, an easy way to give your readers background of the topics you write about with links to complete Britannica articles.
And here is a nice widget that anyone can get about specific topics to embed into a website: (Edited: WordPress doesn’t like iframes, I guess. Pretend that this is right here.)
I applied for the free membership since I am and have been a web publisher since 1993. I’ll keep y’all posted if I get in. Honestly, I was wondering when Britannica was going to try to remain relevant as the steamroller called Wikipedia dominated the Internet.
