PSYC is a push technology through and through.

Whenever we catch ourselves thinking in terms of query/retrieval systems or even negotiation, we stop and wonder if there is a push approach to the problem. Can we inform everyone who needs to know about it as it happens rather than have him ask, did it happen?

Following this concept of event-orientedness consequently leads to surprisingly simple and clean solutions to otherwise impractical back and forth operations.
