Does information need architects?

David Weinberger on the role information architect's will play in a tagged world and why their role will become even more important:

But information architects need not worry. They are not going to be displaced by bottom-up tagging systems. Tagging systems will be used with top-down information structures, except perhaps in a few exceptional instances. Information architects, in fact, will be the leaders in figuring out when and how tagging systems make sense. I would think it's a good time to proudly state "I am an information architect, dammit!"
