Says Dave Winer:

REST was a retrofit by people who don’t like personal computers to try to stop progress in building GUI software that ran over the Internet.

I must admit that I am no expert on REST or SOAP, but I really doubt the people who created SOAP said to themselves: Hmmm, we need a protocol that will stop the progress of building GUI software that runs over the internet. Oh, and we don’t like personal computers! It almost sounds like FUD on Dave’s part…

For info on REST, you can see Paul’s REST Resources. I took a quick look, and didn’t find any mention of stopping the progress of building GUI software that runs over the internet, or not liking personal computers…
