a client interacts with a network application whose application servers provide information dynamically through hypermedia. A REST client needs little to no prior knowledge about how to interact with an application or server beyond a generic understanding of hypermedia.
I don’t believe this is what is meant in the REST dissertation, yet I like the idea very much. This statement will be sourced when I will take the time to consolidate my notes about REST.
