Actor Model, Akka.NET

Inside the Akka.NET open source project and the Actor Model with Aaron Stannard on the Hanselminutes Technology Podcast: Fresh Air for Developers
"Akka.NET is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and fault tolerant event-driven applications on .NET & Mono. This community-driven port brings C# & F# developers the capabilities of the original Akka framework in Java/Scala. Scott talks to co-founder Aaron Stannard about the project, the Actor model, and distributed development in .NET."
"The actor model in computer science is a mathematical model of concurrent computation that treats "actors" as the universal primitives of concurrent computation: in response to a message that it receives, an actor can make local decisions, create more actors, send more messages, and determine how to respond to the next message received."
