This chapter is a jewel.
Could I modestly suggest adding the name of Carl Hewitt because of his historical work on actors which also influenced the work of Abelson and Sussman on Scheme ?

Thanks again for your job

Re: Chapter 9 on Actors (wonderful)
Thanks for the comments. I pushed an updated chapter 9 that should hopefully be available in the next MEAP. Please let me know what you think of the modifications. There's an additonal section that details actor topologies and using Akka actors.
