Hi Joel,

How about the following topics? Not all of them are applicable for
OpenPoker but I think they should be present in any "Hardcore Erlang"
book.

* Interoperability with other languages (java, c...etc) including ports
* Detailed discussion of OTP and behaviours. I've been looking at
current documentation but I know there are lots that are not there
* Future direction of Erlang like web (Erlyweb?) Ajax...etc

Thanks for your contribution.

Best regards,

Ahmed
