tommorris: Alan Kay discusses the history and thought behind OOP. 43 minutes in, he talks about mapping OOP and the Internet - every object should have a URL, he says. Interesting: imagine if you had something like Java where there are some standard methods you define for any class - toString(), hashCode(), equals() etc. - add in constructUri() and you've got yourself a subject.
tommorris: Then imagine the predicates - you've got properties and methods. For each property and method, you could define (or inherit, perhaps using something like Scala's traits system) a URI for the value returned by each method or held in each property.
