I've always found the micropedia/macropedia split annoying in the 15th edition of this great encyclopedia. It makes fact checking somewhat tedious. But, more and more, I find I'm using the long articles as introductions to topics I am unfamiliar with. That's where its real value lies: coherent introductions to fields of knowledge, written by experts. It's certainly not anything we're ever going to see on Wikipedia. ( )
