Fifteen years ago, the market (in the sense of those people,
i.e. marketing departments, with money to pay for tools) wanted, and
already had, final form graphics tools and animation tools and it was
a rejection of market wants that resulted in the web.

Something similar to the modern commercial web may eventually have arisen
from the video on demand projects of the time, but I doubt that it would
have had such a rich variety of content providers.

The movement towards final form rich graphics for everything is actually
a regression to the state before the web.
