It now takes a team and probably the way it should be.
Yes and No.
Depends on your definition of 'team'.
I still do things as a one man shop and can knock out stuff pretty fast but I use all sorts of open source frameworks and libraries. With sites like 99Designs and various freelance outsourcing at your fingertips, assuming you have a little money to spend you can accomplish a lot on the cheap using your 'team' to do most of the work.
I just glue it together with my code when they're all done.
I find it fun that I can build bigger more robust stuff with less effort than I did back in the day and it works across all platforms, desktop to phone, out of the box is totally cool.
FWIW, I think mobile sucked the fun out of the web as everything has to be an app now and there are so many (cr)apps out there that having a breakthrough app these days is next to impossible unless you write games.
