Although not with the intent of replacing teachers, that are indeed
needed for some kinds of learning, we have been thinking of a
'distributed learning' approach in some projects here in Brasil. Some
messy documentation (and mostly in pt_br) is published here:
and some related links here:
We at weblab(.tk) are currently agreeing to take part in a research
project that intends to develop a prototype of a distributed learning
system, but it's too early to talk more about it ;)
BTW, I have coined a couple of years ago a similar term to your 'link
jockey': feed jockey. By then I was thinking of systems like
eyebeam-developed reblog, but nowadays that perspective has been
incorporated, along with a social aspect, by big players such as the
google reader.

best wishes from very hot São Paulo
