As much as anything, I think SOA is a state of mind  

Actually, that's New York.

     Having just joined this list, and entered in the middle of this
discussion, perhaps I'm missing the point?  OO generally refers to the
interaction of pieces of code running in a single process on a single
computer, whereas SOA refers to the interaction between different
processes running on (possibly) different computers.
     Of course, there are plenty of grey areas - "distributed object" 
systems like CORBA or RMI, etc.  As much as anything, I think SOA is a
state of mind - trying to expose as much of your code as possible to
remote code written by other people running on other computers.
