Changing The World - Overnight.

Abstract:
Jeffrey R. Harrow: Many of us remember the encyclopedias that our parents bought for a few dollars per volume at the grocery store -- one volume per week. Although a pale comparison to Encyclopedia Britannica or the other "serious" shelf-sagging reference works of the day, these popular "knowledge bases" fueled many a homework assignment through high school. (By the way, how did you learn to spell 'encyclopedia'? I still mentally recite that rhyme from Jiminy Cricket.)
