incidentally... thing we lose with targeted searches online compared to the old paper-based encyclopedias is the incidental learning. It's learning about the Roman Emperor Tacitus, looking at pictures of tadpoles, and learning a few words of Tagalog on the way to researching your biography of Maria Taglioni.
I too am a little nostalgic about encyclopedias.

Are the recommended videos in the sidebar, or the close-but-not-quite search results today's version of this incidental learning?
