I enjoyed the abbreviated cut-down (once I got over the use of the empty,
warped, buzzsound term "cloud"... its necessary to attract attention from a
certain type of party, but they aren't the sort who are really going to
embrace what you have to say). Its a good reference to explain why Erlang
implies a lot more than just a language. Much better, I think, to do like
you've done here and treat Erlang/OTP as a system that supports a very
different model of computation than most folks are accustomed to than to start
them on the language syntax first.
Actually, quite a few interesting early attempts at explaining Erlang as a
system up-front have come out over the last few threads. Most of this stuff is
unpolished, but represents a lot of effort in a good direction.
