What does 'disconnected' architecture mean?

What does DISCONNECTED Architecture mean? Where does it apply?
EVERYTHING on the Web is disconnected. ASP.NET is disconnected; Web services are disconnected; HTML is disconnected. In the HTTP world of the Web, there's no living connection between a client (browser) and a server (IIS or whatever). Each request is served and thrown to the client and then both remain disconnected from each other until the next Request is issued by the client. It applies to all Web applications you can possibly create. Most of ASP.NET features such as ViewState, PostBack, Session and Application State, etc., are designed precisely to make this disconnected nature the less disturbing as possible, so that you can program the application as if there were a continuous interaction between the client and the server, where there is not.
