Relax Neo, your world is safe. You can continue using OO for as long as you like :-)

Anyhow, I think what JOG had in mind is that hierarchal methods are often used to /define implementations/ of OO. For example inheritance and composition.

Thus the /static/ structures of OO designs are often hierarchal. The /dynamic/ structure of OO programs can more generally be a network.
