Reaction is an application metamodel built using the Catalyst MVC web framework and the Moose metaprotocol and object system.

Component-based UI models work for the desktop but how do you apply them to the web? Can continuation based design help and what do you do about human friendly bookmarkable URLs and minimising stored state? Why are we dependent on scaffolds and can reflection and a metaprotocol help? Matt presents one possible set of answers and the thought process behind the implementation.
