Interesting Thing

Gave a little talk about Seaside today, and a Smalltalker disputed the whole href/goto thing. Now again, this isn't really my idea, but what was interesting was that he said he thought href wasn't so much a goto as a message passed to an object. I disagree, I think, but I do think this is actually the whole point of Rails' approach to REST -- to set Rails apps up as objects simply passing messages to each other, and (in some cases) doing so over HTTP.
