Lorcan Dempsey's weblog: Recombinance all the way up ... remixing all the way down

Lorcan Dempsey's weblog: Recombinance all the way up ... remixing all the way down - Lorcan discusses recombinance/remixing of content objects and services. I think this is taking what was always
hoped for with object oriented programming - I remember Bertrand Meyer's ideas about the cafeteria approach to system building,
but applying these ideas broadly across the network, as truly
distributed services.
This approach almost feels like a step away from object oriented approaches, in that
data may come from one site, and be processed by a distal service.
Like good software products, an ecosystem develops around api's and
datasources that are documented, reusable, dependable, and useful.
perhaps we are seeing functional programming happening on a truly massive scale.
Just my 2 nanocents,
