Work experience

Those "heavily used massively parallel apps" were developed at AOL (mostly) and Amazon (AMZN sucks as an employer).

Ex-AOLers moved on and asked "can you send me a copy of X application?" I once developed pssh, a parallel ssh client, in python/twisted and it got spread around. Python SUCKS they claim cleanliness and OO, but are chock full of exception. Ex. a.append(x) vs del a[-1] ... bullshit.

EventMachine looks like a great competitor to Twisted.
