I wish GigaOm had used a less link-bait title, because the post hits on some important changes in corporate office environments. IT is being co-opted by employees that are more knowledgable about IT than the CTO's. As a result, employees are getting what they want by either doing it themselves or forcing IT to provide it. This is a good thing because, in general, the goal of an IT department is to make their job easier.
By the way, the answer is always "No" when a title ends with a question mark.
