Widgetannica

Speaking of Widgets, the Encyclopaedia Britannica is now offering them too. Poor folks. It may be a day late and a dollar short for them. But who knows, maybe this is their path to survival. I applaud their open data approach, although I’m not sure the entire encyclopedia is available this way. Their interface for finding articles seems a bit clunky. I believe if you sign up for the service, however, (free to bloggers and online publishers) you get better access.

Sigh. Their widget uses iframe markup, which is also not supported by hosted WordPress blogs. Might be time to migrate to my own site for this blog.
