I think that given the talk is limited to 15 mins and that Pieter 
already had messaging-related talks at FOSSDEMs, it would be good to 
present something slightly different, for example how 0MQ solves the 
multithreading problem, based on the following article:



Project name: 0MQ
Project website: www.zeromq.org
Project license: LGPL
Project description: Lightweight messaging library

Talk title:

Multithreading Magic

Talk description:

Multi-core boxes are becoming mainstream, but software tools are not 
keeping with the hardware evolution. Classic multithreading programming 
is complex and error-prone. Systematic solutions, like Erlang 
programming language, on the other hand are limited to small niches and 
are hard to use in real-world legacy environments. The talk explains how 
0MQ can be used to bring Erlang-style message-based concurrency to any 
language in literally couple of minutes.
