Origin of the Term Resource-Oriented Architecture

I got so fed up with people misquoting the origin of the phrase "Resource-Oriented Architecture" that I have corrected the facts on Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resource_oriented_architecture

History of the term ROA

The first published use of the term "Resource Oriented Architecture" was in a presentation by Jorgen Thelin entitled "A Comparison of Service Oriented, Resource Oriented, and Object Oriented Architecture Styles" [1] (pdf) delivered at the OMG Web Services Workshops in February 2003 [2] and April 2003 [3].
A lively follow-on debate on the subject occurred in a set of blog postings by Mark Baker and Jorgen Thelin during February 2003. [4] [5] [6] [7]

Drop me a line if you know of any earlier public usage of the term "Resource-Oriented Architecture"
