I'm reminded of a conversation with a previous manager ;-)

He argued that as an Erlang user I was more object oriented in  
thinking than most of his C++ guys. And he did have a point, by some  
definition of object oriented (an old one I guess, where objects were  
"things" that communicated by sending messages - smalltalk).
