Thanks of all the answers!

I learned a lot from "don't try to speed up contention points,
*eliminate* them."

The idea comes from Jesper hears a little like map-reduce for me.

And for "block the actor", I didn't mean the messages passing are not
asynced. But if we write a "handle_call" in a "gen_server" that takes
a long time to compute things for example. Then the other requests
behind this long time request are blocked (if it wants to get some
information from the "gen_server").
