With CORBA, given an identifier, you need to know what it identifies
*before* you use it, i.e. you need to know it's a stock quote to know to
invoke getQuote().  With the Web, given an identifier, you find out what
it as *after* you invoke GET on it.

The coordination costs with the latter are *dramatically* lower than
with the former.  And between untrusted parties, cheap coordination is
everything.

CORBA didn't succeed over the Internet because it wasn't designed to.
