[FoRK] mod_pubsub way ahead of its time: Comet solves Ajax-envy

Recent presentation at the O'Reilly ETech conference highlighted
"Comet," which is a new name for an old trick: using an open HTTP
connection to send data to clients, rather than using polling like
ajax.

Seems like it's kind of old-hat, with nothing new but the name, but
people are thinking about scalability issues (threading!) and other
subtleties, so it's not all old hat.
