I suppose it HAS been over 20 years...

Lily started her first research project at school today; the first source of information they looked at was Wikipedia. I still remember when my elementary/middle school got a set of Grolier encyclopedias, and there were little cards with questions on them, and we would start some days by picking a card and then finding the answer in the encyclopedia.

And I have to say, while Wikipedia has been invaluable to me as far as having clear definitions for some of the intricacies of the human body (needed for work), I feel somehow disappointed that Lily's first foray into research started on Wikipedia.
