Shorter OED, 6th edition

Here you can find a review by Ed Rothstein of the 6th edition of the Shorter OED, and a few tidbits about a forthcoming book on the OED, Charlotte Brewer's Treasure-House of the Language: The living OED. It's a fine piece and all, but while the headline — "Menagerie, Not Museum, for Words that Live" — makes an important point, the piece itself doesn't make the dictionary or dictionary-making spring to life particularly.
