The discovery of Scala

Yesterday, I have discovered Scala programming language , through a random Slashdot post on Swarm project :

a novel approach to programming distributed systems using Scala's serializable delimited continuations. Ian, CEO of Uprizer Labs and developer of SenseArray, is possibly best known for designing and coordinating Freenet, a popular P2P distributed network storage application.
He presented Swarm at the IEEE Ninth International Conference on Peer-to-Peer Computing in Seattle,USA that took place September 9-11. You can watch a video where he describes Swarm

-- from scala website

Scala and Swarm both sound very interesting and promising!
