Dynamic content

I looked at Aboutglasstile on the weekend, as I showed it to a friend. By doing this, you get a chance to see through another person's eyes etc.
The site has lots of instructional tutorials and galleries - all slideshows - but still....What struck me was how static the site is. The ubiquity of cameras, and the success of Youtube has already revolutionized our notion of how to consume content. I guess that authority is about compelling content, either by sword or pen; same old thing, new technology. So the so-called meritocracy that dynamic web content offers may free up some people, while the NBCs of the world scratch their heads. But as for enabling democracy - let's say that democracy may be available to those who crave it.
But chances are, politics will continue to be administered and interpreted by people who can create compelling Imagery.
