OMG, Multi-Threading is Easier Than Networking

A friend sent me a link to this Intel paper today:
OMG, Multi-Threading is Easier Than Networking

If you think the title is somewhat odd for a technical paper, wait until you read the actual paper. It contains cats. What more can I say?

Content-wise the paper is an excellent read for anyone who wants to get started with multi-threaded programming. I have to say that the lack of academic mumbo jumbo is really refreshing, which alone made the paper well worth the time to read, even though it didn't contain a lot of unique information. I wish more papers were written like this. Short and to the point. Lots of info that's instantly useful. Unlike a lot of the academic papers that seem to be written primarily with the intent of making the author seem good.
