2. Context-Free Callability


  • APIs have callable methods.
  • Objects defined in OOP languages have callable interfaces (from methods).


  • Data is callable context-free, if it carries the web location of the origin of its instances, definition of schema (metaheader) to manage them, and optionally authorization data with permissions bound to machine’s identity (ssh public key).


  • Given a data record, can we call update operations or some method call without manually instantiating a client, or manually connecting with API.
  • Does reading the data record within REPL of a language instantiate a fully-featured object, with address pointing to the data source, and methods allowing to interact with the source?
