Woah, relax! ��That was a joke. ��Actors are a very powerful concurrency model. ��That's one of the things I want to talk about - can an Actor-like model be added to Clojure's concurrency tool set, and is it useful to do so?

It's also a joke because I was an actor before becoming an opinionated software developer. :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday.
