Forget WOA, ROA, SOA - Talk about Links

+1 to Sam Ruby’s post:

The link is the glue that holds the web together. It is what differentiates the web from protocols like ftp that merely serve as access methods for documents.

The very notion of a link has become practically inexpressible and virtually unthinkable in the vernacular of SOA.

The industry as a whole has become so dependent on abstractions that they’re used without regards for their benefit.
