A small point I neglected to draw out in the previous post

"Things that make the web useful" (searchability, among other things) and "things that make the web engrossing" (cross-linking, among other things) are two distinct categories, though with at least some overlap.  "Things that make the web popular" is yet a third, comprising most of the other two.

This pattern can't be unique to the web.
