Threading is not a model

I just saw the Threading is not a model talk by Joe Gregori from PyCon 2010, which I found very interesting. It has some history about programming language development, and some discussion about design of every-day physical stuff and every-day programming language stuff. I especially find the idea of sufficient irritation very funny and interesting. :)

The main part of the talk is about different ways of implementing concurrency, mainly CSP (Communicating Sequential Processes) and Actors. Interesting stuff presented by a good speaker.
