The name is mine. I probably implemented it. The notion that parents are just slots that are duplicated in each object comes from a language called Kevo, by Antero Taivalsaari.

Glad you like it!

The hard part about this model is how to explain what happens when you want to change the behavior of a bunch of existing objects. How does the change get propagated to the individual objects? If I recall, Kevo used cloning history.

There was another language, called StripeTalk, that was invented by Randy and Alan Borning, I believe. I think it handled that issue better.
