Passive Consumers?

What is Yahoo! doing? That's the question asked by Greg Yardley, responding to recent talk about a pyramid of content creation, which he argues, shows how Yahoo's design decisions are being pushed towards the needs of a passive audience.

Google just released a Page Builder tool, which makes building a basic content website as simple as using Gmail. Interesting timing there.
