Academic is not a curse-word (except for those that failed univ).

I am not familiar with the AXD 301 code base to say anything about it,
I have not worked with it.

The power of Erlang is not in the trademark, it is in the practices
Erlang put you in when programming, those practices when well
understood can be applied on other languages. That is what interest
me.
