Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP) provides excellent patterns for building concurrent systems. Clojure's core.async provides a Clojure implementation of CSP in a single address space. However, very few programs run in a single address space. Web applications run in a combination of the browser and one or more servers. Very often, applications will span a cluster of servers.

Dragonmark Circulate provides a mechanism for distributing core.async channels across address spaces while providing the same semantics to all the address spaces.

David Pollak (Dragonmark and Lift founder) will discuss using Dragonmark to create a web-based chat app as well as recruiting members of the audience to participate in the open source project (aka, please help whitewash my fence).

Oh... and I'll hug Bruce and anyone else who wants a hug... but I'll do that anyway.
