The Scaredy Cat Encyclopedia

From David Weinberger’s journal

The Encyclopedia Britannica has refused my request to interview an editor for 15 minutes about the process by which it chooses authors. I explained that this is for a book. But, the head of the Britannica’s communications group decided – based on what? – that they don’t want to support people who are “cheerleading for the downfall of businesses that they deem to be part of an old regime.”
