changed it from a <input type=text> to an <asp:TextBox
and it works fine.

points are still up for grabs if you can tell me why.

input type="text" is an HTML control. It will only post as part of the form if you give it a name attribute. When you use an ASP.NET server-side control, it renders to the browser with an appropriate name attribute worked out from the control's ID, so that posts automatically. Try your first one with a name as well as an ID and it should work.
