Rx Framework

A new addition to the .Net platform, the Rx framework, aka 'reactive programming', aka 'linq to events'.

Here is the presentation, the theoretical discussion/explanation/proof about the relation between the Iterator & Observer pattern, and another very good explanation.

The .Net approach is very elegant and reminded me of Glazed Lists and of F# Reactive Programming.

Other thought associations were to F# async workflows, and ruby gui frameworks: bowline based on Titanium, and MonkeyBars based on swing.
