What we Pick from prior work

Askemos core structure is influenced by Erlang/OTP. This buys us proven concept, the "actor model", to create distributed systems which need to graceful degrade when the network is partitioned. From L3 we take the idea that processes can be persistent even over a system reboot. From functional programming we take immutable data and store this in immutable "booked memory" (a.k.a. "blockchains sans native crypto currency" these days - though these are not a prior work to Askemos). From Scheme we take a minimal initial language which we use to update shared state in booked memory. From state machines replication we take the concept byzantine consensus about shared facts. Finally we recognize the concepts "privity and privacy" and conclude to distribute shared facts precisely to parties relevant to the fact and possibly witnesses deliberately chooses by those parties.
