I found this on a blog

"Bertrand Meyer had eloquently proven at ICSOC 2003
that OO cannot deal with concurrency very well, in
other words the granularity and programming model of
an object don't let you create (autonomous) "peers"."

Does anyone know more about this? I haven't been able
to find what Meyer's actual argument was, but it
sounds like what Some People have been preaching for a
while :-)
