I am heading West again today. With my stack of Middleware paper to review, 2 papers close to deadlines, a development backlog, 2 episodes of The Shield and 3 of State of Play to watch, and 2 pending posts to the weblog to complete. Unfortunately the flights aren't of the 12 hour kind, so I am curious what will get done.

The two postings are in response to an exchange with Sean McGrath on asynchronous programming abstractions in distributed systems, and one in response to Mark Nottingham's posting on aggregator scale, and our exchange on the atom-list.

I hope to get to at least the two postings.
