    When I started reading up on Erlang and the actor model a couple of years ago, I was surprised to find it to be exactly what I had imagined OOP to be when I read the theory of that in my early programming days.

    I recently spent some time writing a (what I though to be) fairly simple distributed system in .NET, and found that most of the code revolved around fault tolerance (and it was not very pleasant). Will make sure to spend more time looking into Erlang (or maybe Elixir, or perhaps Pulsar in Clojure)
