After 244 years, the Encyclopaedia Britannica is going out of print.

On March 13, 2012, writer Julie Bosman wrote an article for The New York Times titled After 244 Years, Encyclopaedia Britannica Stops the Presses

Am I surprised by this bit of news? No, not really. It seems that with the advent of the internet and easy access to Wikipedia, who needs the printed version of  an encyclopaedia taking up shelf space in one's home?
