The other day, I recommended Fielding's REST dissertation again, and realised it's been some time since I last read it. Upon re-reading, I realise what I'd forgotten about it, namely that it's an excellent framework for talking about a distributed architecture.

It also very clearly outlines what *isn't* addressed by REST; things that are used in modern web development. No wonder do few apps that use "REST frameworks" actually use the REST architecture.

I'm going to have to write about this.

I feel it also goes a long way towards addressing what was long-winded and ranty about my FOSDEM talk. Now I just have to get through that before FOSSASIA, so I can present it there.

No pressure.
