I think you are overestimating people in general. I knew a guy I worked with in a Church setting, who did all the web development for the different web pages for each ministry. (It was a large Church). He would be contracted to produce a presence page for a particular ministry, so he would ask the head of that ministry for some content. Photos, text blurbs, the usual. 

Almost inevitably, they would get back to him days or even weeks later and say, "How's that web page coming along. We really need it." He would reply that he asked for content and had not gotten it yet. They would usually reply something like, "I thought that was what you did." 

Yeah. I'm not kidding.

I can only think this comes from the fact that most folks under 30 have grown up with the internet and all it's content just being there magically and when they get to a point of having to produce it they just think it is always out there and they don't have to really deal with it even when their job requires creating good content for their companies or orgs needs. I have been bluntly asked many times why should I bother creating the content. I keep asking well where will folks get it? Call you up, lord no that costs too much money and we don't want to answer questions that way!
