Stuart Marks and Brian Goetz gave an excellent talk on this at JavaOne last week.

You can view it here.  The talk is called "Thinking in Parallel". <>

InfoQ wrote a useful summary of the talk, for those with no time for video: <>

But the video is very enjoyable, even if you think you know what they are going to say.

P.S.  One influence of this year's presentation is an epic manifesto by Guy Steele in 2010. <>
