Influence of WWW on molecular genetics

Anyone,

	I would like to request feedback on the issue of molecular genetics and
the WWW.  Assuming that most who review these pages are professors and
are involved in molecular genetics, I am interested in opinions on the
its influence, be it good or bad.  Besides the obvious dissemination of
information at higher rates, what do people feel are some of the
benefits?  Is there too much information floating out there?  Is it of
poorer qualtiy?  Does this matter?  What are its limitations and what
does the future hold?  From my limited browsing it seems to me that
amount of information is overwhelming.  How does one "sift" through the
good and the bad?  Would more centralized organizations and sites such
as the NCBI and Human Genome Project be more helpful?
