Right on, man. But I've got to say that 85% of the developer base WILL apply
VB design principles (single machine, single user, ui oriented, functional
decomposition) until they see it done differently and try it out.
What can we do to make it easier to 'try it out'?
How can we make asynchronous messaging more visible and visceral to
Who is going to provide the 'asynch toolkit'?
