At a gala reception in San Francisco Tuesday night, two Britannica Web sites each received one of the most sought-after honors in the digital publishing business. I hope you won’t mind if I crow about it just a bit.
The host of the event was the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA); the honors bestowed: the Codie Awards, which “celebrate achievement and vision in software, education technology and digital content.”
That night, Britannica Online School Edition, our K-12 school site, was named “Best Education Reference or Search Service,” while our blog (the main one, not the one you’re reading now), took the top spot in the “Best Corporate Blog” category.
Naturally, we’re thrilled.
