No it's always been like that since the beginning. But to say we only need
one or the other is a false dichotomy. You need people who produce lots of
content and people who can take the rough ideas and shape them into
something coherent. Ideally perhaps everyone could do best but the pattern
that emerges everywhere (publishing world, open source development, online
wikipedias, etc) is that there's many producers who produce the bulk of the
stuff with varying levels of quality and quantity and editors that give
order and consistency to the whole.
