Cool.  Better in what way? (A serious question.)

As a semi-related tangent, I have seen multiple interesting and  
serious proposals in the last couple months for the high-performance  
routing of exotic and pervasively decentralized and distributed high- 
dimensionality topologies (e.g. for vanilla 3D and 4D spatio- 
temporal).  Spontaneous convergence?  The fact remains that current  
basic algorithms in computer science for managing dynamic data in  
these models are quite poor, but the space is being taken seriously  
and a lot of really tasty research is being done.

The PubSub reminded me of this, since things like intelligent geo- 
notification loom large among the potential applications, a PubSub  
model writ large.
