Where Did All the DHTML Folks Go?

It's wierd; I've been searching on the net for DHTML info, and it's almost like Roanoke out there. There are a flurry of articles, sites, and abstraction layers from 1998 through 2001, and then they all die off. Even the DHTML book market died off. 1999-2001 was when everyone woke up and realized that DHTML sucks; the thing is, though, that I think while it was being actively ignore DHTML might have grown up. Even the amazing DynAPI hasn't been updated since 2001. The only game in town seems to be X.
