Sure, you've been busy, but hopefully not too busy to notice that...
...Application requirements have changed dramatically in recent years. Only a few years ago a large application had tens of servers, seconds of response time, hours of offline maintenance and gigabytes of data. Today applications are deployed on everything from mobile devices to cloud-based clusters running thousands of multi-core processors. Users expect millisecond response times and 100% uptime. Data is measured in Petabytes. Today's demands are simply not met by yesterday’s software architectures.- from the Reactive Manifesto

If you are already familiar with the Reactive Manifesto, what are your thoughts?
