Wisdom of the crowd vs. Wisdom of the Analysts?

Jeneane's had a cracking idea:

I'm exhausted from trying to research some stuff--in annual report writing hell as we speak--which has me thinking that there's another wall that needs to come down, and it's the wall separating me from the stats I need to write effectively.

The major analyst firms either need to offer a price/platform for indies and new media folks, OR new media folks need to start indie analyst gropus of their own, offering their findings at a price that's at least sort of affordable, which is not $3K for a report.

Or even better, a wikipedia version of research and analysis compilations.
