Hannes Wallnöfer of RingoJS proposes an alternative concurrency model for JavaScript that is based on the Actor model.

Hannes focuses on features aimed towards highly concurrent, CPU-heavy, server-side applications, including selective data sharing, concurrent lock-free data structures, functional programming, and read-only data.
