Last year, the Encyclopaedia Britannica offered “Web publishers” a free one year subscription to their online research tool, normally costing $70.

I guess I didn’t get much value out of that offer since it was a surprise to get this in the mail today.

You have only 60 more days until your Encyclopaedia Britannica Online subscription will expire, and we’d regret to see you go back to the time consuming chase of ordinary internet searches.

I wonder how many of the bloggers EB originally targeted are willing to pay that kind of money to avoid “ordinary internet searches”.
