I think good hand authorability is more valuable than good tools.

For instance, in the past I've written that a card catalog is hardly worth
the effort if only a fraction of the books in the library are represented.
That's what metadata on the Web is like today.

It needs to be easy enough for anyone, tools or no, to create. Only then
will it be worth coming up with new ways to transform, link, and render all
this good stuff.
