"the reason why our approach was considered radical and strange in the 1980's was the so-called Tuple Space Model — the idea being that if you had a lot of computing agents who needed to communicate, instead of sending messages to each other, essentially like e-mail, if I had information for someone, I'd just write it on a piece of datum and release it and it would just float up into the cybersphere. If I needed information, I'd look around, grab whatever I want, I would read it or, if it were a task to be done, I'd grab it so nobody else could grab it. " -David Gelernter
