Great presentation.

First, I liked the example of SQL as a language that is not concurrent but can be parallel. In theory, I guess almost any language can be parallelized, but it wouldn't work out very well in many cases.

Also, I liked his introduction of distributed haskell. Obviously he didn't go into much detail, but he mentioned enough about what it's trying to accomplish that I'd like to take a look. Erlang is nearly the only game in town here (that I know about, anyway), so I look forward to learning more about the haskell community's take on distributed computing.
