I've not read them but I'm told this is derived from the Linda stuff.
Linda had `tuple spaces', which is where the `spaces' comes from.

I think the Linda stuff was pretty neat but worried about how to make
access to the spaces efficient (in a distributed memory world).  The
security issues were not too bad (?) and the great merit was that
the ideas *were* simple.
