At TPAC in 2017, someone asked me, what would I do if I could work on what I was really interested in and cared about? I sheepishly admitted that, well, I'd like to work on social networks as a distributed virtual world / game.
I thought I'd be laughed out of the room. Instead, it turned out that almost everyone I was working with had background in that space. Even the ocap stuff I'd been studying came largely from Electric Communities Habitat.
That gave me the courage to pursue #Spritely.

Do you have a favorite tutorial on the actor model? My background is pretty non-traditional, though I've been fleshing things out.
