That's a great description (even the parts about Twisted ;) ) - bookmarked. Thanks!

My one dislike about the general introduction is the sole focus on I/O. In its context (as a Twisted intro) this is entirely understandable, but I'm afraid some people may come away thinking that async never involves threads. (Not that waiting on a thread is any different to waiting on I/O. Thread parallelism is a completely different concept, of course.)
