Tim Bray's concur.net

I just came across Tim Bray's blog, ongoing -- a neat technical blog from one of the more significant thinkers in the field. I'm adding it to my daily feed: the signal/noise ratio looks good enough to be worth it.

Most interesting right now is his concur.next project: basically a personal exploration of the major options currently around for real-world concurrency, and specifically a look at the main contenders that he calls the HECS languages (Haskell, Erlang, Clojure, Scala). It's an interesting, pragmatic, freewheeling discussion, trying to figure out which of these is likeliest to become "the next Java". He's admittedly biased towards Erlang (much as I am towards Scala), but I think he's doing a good job of exploring the issues that will matter going forward...
