Hi all,

Those of you that would be by chance present at Linux Kongress 2010 in 
Nurnberg, make sure to see my talk on Sept 23rd, 17:15PM. Here's the 

"Scalability Layer Hits the Internet Stack"

This article argues that aside of TCP/IP (interlinked network hosts) and 
world-wide web (interlinked documents) we need a simple general-purpose 
decentralised infrastructure to interlink services.

We will argue that the technical difficulty of connecting service 
providers and service consumers in a distributed fashion can be solved, 
and we will explain how we propose to solve it. We will present ØMQ, 
which is a simple messaging library focused on this goal.

Using ØMQ, we will demonstrate how large-scale distributed services can 
be built with basically zero friction. We will introduce new reusable 
patterns for service interconnect that are intended to become the 
building blocks for a new "scalability layer" in the Internet stack.

Finally, we will discuss the feasibility of a kernel-space 
implementation of the "scalability layer".
