an anecdote of minor interest. We had a student in our office that did
his thesis on SOA. got a very good grade, has a nice job now. This guy
was quite smart and technically competent as well, I attempted a few
times to get a description of SOA out of him. I never did get anything
that I recognized as being technical, although whenever he talked
about it he got that abstracted look that I get trying to explain
various technical things to people. But anyway, I DID manage to
confirm from him that both REST and SOAP-based webservices were SOA.

Not sure if that helps narrow it down though ;)
