[Twisted-Python] Meaning of "Asynchronous networked applications"

My PyGTA presentation from a few months ago tries to provide some 
background on what asynchronous programming in Twisted is.  It contrasts 
asynchronous programming models with various other approaches to 
parallelising code:
In short, Twisted represents one of many possible approaches to the 
problem of "waiting in parallel", that is, multiplexing events so that 
while a given process is blocked on (for instance) input/output/network 
operations, other operations can continue.

Good luck,
