I’ve been signed up for the famo.us beta access for a while, and have followed news of their progress with interest. The stress test currently running on their site is most impressive and the theory of the technology behind it seems sounds. This could transform the development of web apps, and make a lot of OC and Java developers feel a little… redundant. Especially as they are planning to open-source their engine!
Infoworld has the latest news, with some backstory too.
