  "Webservices" are any service that are offered on the web
  (regardless of what technology is used to provide them).

with these precisisations

1. With "service" I mean not only that some functionality is
   provided, but that there should also be some description of
   this functionality, namely how the service should be used and
   what it provides.

2. With saying that the service is "offered on the web" I mean
   that it's offered on the internet via standard protocols,
   i.e. protocols that are open, widely published, and freely
   available for anyone to implement.
