It is Benjamin Franklin's 300th birthday on January 17, 2006. To celebrate his tercentenary, Vivisimo, Inc., has created a Ben Franklin Portal as a public service educational resource. For the first time, the public can search and view all of Benjamin Franklin's writings that are available on the web--his autobiography, essays, correspondence, and proverbs--at a one-stop web portal that includes a hand-curated collection of the many thousands of websites and pages related solely to Franklin.
