Nature discovers the preprint archive

In what must be a response to the increasing self-publication of preprints, research notes and articles, Nature has started Precedings (as in "not procedings") with pre-peer-review science. Will this turn science into blogger react-first check-later hive frenzy, was that already the case, just not at Nature - or is all well and good and this is just the magnifying glass of the scientific publishers being turned on the real creative phase of science?
