Not Erlang per se, but Erlang is really an implementation of the Actor
formalism. You'll find a lot if you google on things like:
planner (the computer language)
"Carl Hewitt" - the father of the actor formalism
be warned, if you google on "artifical intelligence" + actors - you'll
get lots of pages on A.I. the movie :-)
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
