However, there are some missing features that I think are not trivial to implement. I'm also not a fan of how cells decentralizes data and messaging, but I digress. I feel like much more development needs to be done on it and I'm not sure I really like the structure and requirements. I guess my view of cells is that it's a good way to partition clouds into a hierarchy and divide failure domains. I just don't think it's the end all in matters of scale in it's current state. I'm hopeful that we can flesh this out a bunch more in Icehouse.

I would think that de-centralizing is key when going for ultimate scale.  But I am extremely interested in people's input and would love to get a group of people together to help 'make it right'. :)
