Embracing Change After 244 Years

Encyclopedia Britannica announced today that they will no longer publish the printed edition.
 
About a month ago, my Mother asked me “What should I do with the encyclopedia set?  Should I send them to you so your kids can use it?”
 
The books were precious to her because she had purchased them for me when I was in high school.  It was quite an investment at the time.
 
I recall answering “No, that’s okay.  Just leave them there.  My kids will never use them.”
 
First published in 1768, the title of their early advertisements read “All Questions Answered.”
 
Where do we go to get all questions answered today?
 
Change is not coming.  It’s already here.
