Concurrency and River
If you're interested in concurrency, distributed systems, and ways to best use the manycore processors we're being promised, then check out the Concurrency and River thread on the development mailing list of the incubating Apache River project. The thread is about concurrency and ways the River project (a continuation of Jini from Sun) and related technologies like JavaSpaces could be used to parallellize many computing tasks. There are also some nice comparisons to Erlang and Scala, and how the actor model used by them is related to the Jini network model.
