Live documents

Why are living Web documents such as wiki’s, blog entries, blog comments, and such **so** much more interesting than PDF’s, Microsoft Word, etc.

The former are dynamic, the latter static. Document formats are evolving.

Documents are more interesting if you can interact with them. The more you can, the more compelling they become.

    “Living Web” I think you are using the term incorrectly, let me explain, dynamic documents quickly become static documents as son as they are completed or not updated within a specific time frame, is dynamic = “real time” of simply a document that is not finished. The Living Web, is alive, taking in data from remote bots, making real-time decisions using ai and ultimately eliminating the day to day decision making we need to look after, ie check the hot tub chemicals, check to se if the stove is on etc, make sure I wake up for work on time.
