1. what is liquid?

** Liquid is a data flow processing reference and specification. Following its guidelines allows you create explicit relationships and associations between your data and sytems. Once setup, the application implicitely update any dependencies. So you can concentrate on your algorithms and forget about much of the maintenance. **

As part of liquid's mission, there are also a few actual implementations of the concept, which serve as the core reference platform.

The goal of liquid is for many developpers to share the specification by either using the reference core or other compliant custom built nodes. This will, in the end, provide an exciting kernel to be used for much higher level applications such as end-user software, clustered databases, or next-generation Operating Systems, with no concept of application.
