REST is a crap name in a web world

Okay I was looking around for some REST stuff today, specifically around performance tuning for the mandlebrot stuff. So I thought I'd search for "REST performance tuning" and its no better on yahoo. Like when Microsoft talked about having a language called "COOL" and its bad enough that they ended up with .NET (image searching for COOL .NET application tuning).

For something that was designed for the Web, indeed which helped design the protocol behind the Web there really wasn't much thought put into naming it so it works well on the Web.
