I’ve been thinking a lot lately that websockets are going to fundamentally change the architecture of the web. It lets you think about backend architecture in a whole new light. Projects like Nanite, EventMachine, Mongo, Redis… I think these are the future. I even question the utility of rails in a client-side-app-always-connected world.

I’m just pondering now… trying to flesh out what I think is going to happen and how we can embrace it sooner.

Events: Modern JavaScript architecture is actually pretty powerful, how can we take the “bolted on functionality” approach to servers.
Messages: They’re kinda like events right?
Request/Response Cycle: it’s probably dead?
