Modelling concurrent computation is not the place for an intellectual "land grab"; if your work has value, I think it's time to let other people promote it for you.
Please confine your remarks to substantive issues.

BTW. Wikipedia suffers many of the same bugs as other Internet Social Media. I started the Wikipedia article on the Actor Model. Unfortunately, the article is now extremely obsolete because of Wikipedia censorship. See the following for current information:
PS. It is invalid to criticize a scientist for publishing original research. Instead, publishing original research is a primary activity of scientists.

The recursive definition of Y can easily be adapted to be strongly typed. However, there is no strongly typed Y combinator without self-applicable recursively defined types. Consequently, the Y combinator is not something that needs to concern a competent programmer, who will of course be using strong types ;-)
A competent programmer selects their tools based on multiple metrics, which can include meta metrics like popularity (size of hiring pool) as well as external constraints such as a predetermined platform or interoperability with an existing system.
