Great slides on the Actor Model by Steve Dekorte of Io fame

Steve Dekorte, C4 2006: Actors, a Unifying Pattern for Scalable Concurrency

You've probably noticed all the links to Actor Model and programming language stuff. If you want a good summary, I think these slides are great. If you aren't too interested in the Io language stuff, you can gloss over those slides, you'll find "big picture" talk before and after that section.

This stuff is going to be my life for the foreseeable future.
