Did you know

Did you know…

… that today is the birthday of Britannica.com? In 1999, the Encyclopaedia Britannica website froze as it attempted to handle more than 12 million hits on its inaugural day. The encyclopedia is written by about 100 full-time editors and more than 4,000 contributors. The 2010 version of the 15th edition was the last printed edition; digital content and distribution has continued since then.
