If this were 1995, perhaps. But today you don't have to have bipeds doing
"80-100% of the lifting for 90% of the result." Even that part of the
process can be largely automated. For example, look at all the
organizational/directory/tracking tools lone individuals are creating for
the blogging space. Tools for pattern and relation recognition are advancing
at a good clip.
