Yahoo! and Node

In Multi-Core HTTP Server with
Peter Griess (Principal Engineer, Yahoo! Mail) discusses using Node at
Yahoo! Mail. He discusses threading, and solutions like
multi-node. He also demonstrates using node-v0.1.100 with
node-webworker (which he wrote).

One interesting point in his post is about the quality of modules
written in C+. Given the paradigm shift between writing solid
JavaScript and efficient, portable and *safe
C, modules aren't always
reliable. Hopefully the community will attract more hardened C*+
developers to help improve popular modules.

It's great to see a company like Yahoo! taking an interesting in Node,
and I hope they end up using it in their architecture. Peter's already
created some useful projects (at
github/pgriess), and this would be great ammunition to use if you're trying to sell your boss on using Node.
