Stuart Halloway discusses how we use a total control time model, proposing a different one that represents the world more accurately helping to solve some of the concurrency and parallelism problems.
Dale Schumacher explains the actor concept and how it helps us build a computational model resembling the reality around us more accurately than the object-oriented model.
