I have the same conflict. ?But now that the speaker/topic for the Clojure meetup has been settled I'm doing the Clojure meetup. ?The language slapdown looks like a lot of fun, but honestly I pick up languages pretty fast but only get to use a?paltry?few :-(.

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.
