Swarm – A Transparently Scalable Distributed Programming Language
http://code.google.com/p/swarm-dpl/

Swarm is a framework allowing the creation of web applications which can scale transparently through a novel portable continuation-based approach. Swarm embodies the maxim “move the computation, not the data”. Swarm is implemented in Scala 2.8 (unreleased at the time of writing), and makes use of the delimited continuations plugin. Swarm is currently at an early stage of development, although it is able to migrate a thread between servers as needed. Currently the best way to learn about Swarm is to watch the video and then read about their current efforts on their OpenIssues page. Swarm was initially proposed by Ian Clarke in this blog post, although the concept has evolved considerably since then.
