Fact #500: The word “knowledge” comes from the Old English word “cnawan”, meaning to know, perceive, recognize. Its first usage was seen in the 12th century CE.

Almost exactly 2 years ago, I wrote my first fact on my fact-a-day blog, namanknowledge. The fact was “namanknowledge will be added to your favorites bar real soon.” Hopefully I wrote a fact and not an opinion! Joke there. Anyway, I’ve reached a grand milestone of 500 facts today, and will continue to deliver ever more bits of knowledge for my readers’ consumption. Just wanted to take today’s post to say thank you to everyone who reads the blog, as it sustains me when I know folks out there are taking the time to become a bit more learned, however slight, with each fact I post.
Suggestions are always welcome and are always credited!
Few technical fun facts:
