No, I think not. It's probably time to bring content into sharper relief
and push the technology (the nuts'n'bolts) more into the background. The
tools are less interesting as they become more sophisticated yet simpler to
use. It's how we use them that's interesting, as well as what we use them
for...isn't it??
