Steve Vinoski gives an interview at Erlang Factory
There are people who you meet and you say to yourself, “How can this guy be so good at so many things?” Steve Vinoski is one of those people. He has a wonderful interview, recorded at Erlang Factory, where he discusses the key concepts of RPC frameworks such as CORBA, and how that compares to REST, and how Erlang fits into both worlds. You can find the interview here. Steve is the author and maintainer of Yaws, the Erlang web server that makes Apache cry like a baby.
