Interesting comments:


"It's not just prominent companies that use ZeroMQ. My own small
application Rapid Photo Downloader uses it for interprocess
communication. The design approach outlined by the late Pieter
Hintjens in the ZeroMQ guide is pretty awesome, I think. It makes it
relatively easy to write applications that use multiple CPU cores. In
my experience it also makes for easier to maintain code!
ZeroMQ integration with tornado makes it really pretty easy to build a
load balancer into your application, freeing up a lot of development
time for other areas of the code.
I'm interested to know how Pieter's approach is valued by the coders
at large in 2019. Is it seen as complex or easy?
Jupyter uses ZeroMQ extensively. I would not be surprised if they have
been heavily involved in maintaining the Python bindings for ZeroMQ
for a long time now.
Anyways, I hope it works out great for the FFmpeg folks. "

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
