Object oriented programming

Last week there was a thread on OOP -- object oriented programming.

I like to try to keep up with what's going on even though I'm not a
programmer.  For folks like me, could someone who knows something
about the field make a stab at a brief, simple definition of 
"object oriented programming"?  I'd like to know what it is, not
what language (C++, ?) is used; or maybe it's defined by what it is NOT?
The opinions stated are mine, not those of NCTR or its sponsoring organizations.
