Wow, @Brujo, that's an excellent resource. Thanks for sharing!

@yestin, the list is quite long, so to start somewhere I would recommend 
the very beginning, which would be Joe's PhD's thesis

http://erlang.org/download/armstrong_thesis_2003.pdf (the link 8. in the 
Introduction, which should host the same document, doesn't seem to work).

This gives a high-level view of the overall design principles. After 
that if you like verbose and explanatory writing then Learn you some 
Erlang book is pretty good, albeit quite long. Otherwise Erlang and OTP 
in Action is very good
