But they're stagnant and empty until behavior decides what to write on them, when to write on them, the meaning of what's written on them, and ultimately uses them. Without behavior they're useless. Even interactive SQL is a behavior with the business rules originating with the author and meaning and value determined by the author (of the SQL).

3x5 cards also make for a poor web interface.
