This article really disappointed me. I wasn't expecting ACM Queue to publish articles with this low quality. I come to ACM Queue for quality, otherwise there is not point.

Very poor explanation of the problem the author is trying to solve with his proposal. The chosen example doesn't expose the benefit of the presented technology. The conclusions are presumptuous and with claims without proper foundation.

"Current programming languages do not have the concept of hiding information. Ideally, programming languages should have facilities to share state and provide controlled access to this selectively."

With all due respect, the above statement is false. The author seems to ignore the actor model family of languages. Erlang and Pony came to mind before I finished reading the above claim.
