To those that say great tools like eGranary lesson the desire for "real" broadband content, I challenge them to ask the users of such offline data repositories. They will quickly find, as I have, users who were scared of online content grow familiar and comfortable with it by using this "safe" offline medium first. As the eGranary is mainly a replica of the Internet, its a controlled first step. But just that - a first step. Users quickly wonder what else is out there, and expect actual online experiences to be as fast and rewarding as locally hosted sites. Or to put it another way - when eGranary is your first "online" experience, slow dial-up just isn't gonna satisfy. So kudos to eGranary & others like it (SOS Childrens Village Wikipedia, Moulin) for helping wet the appetite for online knowledge.
