Oxford English Dictionary ‘will not be printed again’ – Telegraph

Oxford English Dictionary ‘will not be printed again’ – Telegraph.

Absolutely remarkable.  The ebook revolution, attempted so many times in the past, is finally taking hold.  Not the first reference book to die this way, but surely one of the most prestigious.

Notable quote:

Despite its worldwide reputation, the OED has never made a profit.

Wow.
