Many other protocols like telnet and FTP keep track of the connection 'state' so they can know what has been done and what comes next.  HTTP is 'stateless' because each request is independent of the previous and future requests.  This is not to say that a web site is necessarily stateless, it can be a process but the individual requests are not tracked by the HTTP protocol, they have to be tracked by the web site software.
