Did someone mention user-contributed content?

Well, if Time magazine recognzies user-contributed content (Person of the Year: You) is the next big thing, maybe it is (or maybe it's on the way out).

Time recognizes there are incentives issues:

Who are these people? ... Who has that time and that energy and that passion? ... Sure, it's a mistake to romanticize all this any more than is strictly necessary. Web 2.0 harnesses the stupidity of crowds as well as its wisdom.
