He's making sites from scratch without programming because HTML isn't programming. Most small business/personal websites require little to no work even at the javascript level. He isn't talking about writing a blog, he's talking about a dozen screens for a restaurant with their location, menu, and a few pictures. Which still probably shouldn't be done by hand anymore unless its a personal for fun project.

It would get rid of the only piece of functionality worth having. The screen was tiny, hard to see, impeded your normal vision, and more or less utterly sucked. It couldn't be interacted with and couldn't take text input well. The only interesting thing about the device was the camera and what you could do with it in the realm of computer vision. I'd rather lose the screen and have a wearable camera with bluetooth to my phone for display and processing. I already have a far superior screen in my pocket and I can perform real input on it. The screen was useless.
