I think it's a weird hierarchy not just of knowledge, but of time frames, too. If you spend 3 minutes looking it up online, it's not like you privelege the information much, but it takes a lot longer to go to the lib, so you don't do it, because you didn't care that much in the first place. I think knowledge hierarchy stayed static, but the time hierarchy down-shifted, so now it's worth (a little of) our time to find out stuff that we didn't care that much about before. I do think we know a lot more than we would have known if knowledge were less accessible than it was...I still couldn't tell you if the knowledge is valuable, though.
