Yes, my idea for the panel title was a play on this and also recent discussions of “object-oriented ontology.”

Probably has also to do with all the hours we’ve spent recently documenting the history and performance of SmallTalk!

Object-oriented programming is now dominant in systems development. It is an integral part of computer science curricula, as are languages built on object-oriented programming concepts, such as Smalltalk, C++, Java, and Python.

The panel could be an opportunity to present this kind of “object-oriented history of technology” work, and to talk about its promise and pitfalls.
