GIS as Ubiquitous as Word Processing?

Came across this great article looking at the effects of the spread of mapmaking tools and greater access to data. While all this great access to tool and data is good, how do we ensure good quality in the use of these tools? And how do we use these tools to broaden the dialogue and conversations in our communities? Interesting food for thought.

Is GIS about to get as ubiquitous as word processing, and if so what are the implications?
