If they want object orientation they should not be using Java or C++. I'm inclined to say they should not be using C++ unless they have a huge codebase already in any case.

    You'll have to explain that?

        Man, what an uncomfortable speaker to watch.

        Whilst C++ and Java (and other data+procedure languages) aren't what he meant when he coined the term 'object-oriented', they are what the world+dog has decided (and been educated) to understand that term to mean.

        His notion of black boxes containing: data; plus code that knows how to interpret that data; plus metadata that can be queried at runtime to discover what the black box contains and how it can be manipulated (introspection); is quite a different animal to what most people and computer scientists think of when faced with that term.

        It brings to mind the Moose/MOP thing; but actually, probably much to his chagrin going by his subtext in the video, the systems that most closely fit his vision are Microsoft's COM and .NET.
