This paper presents the BaLinda model, based on last in/first out threads that interact via a shared tuplespace, and discusses the idea of using function based objects as the basic unit of parallel execution, and the hierarchical structure to partition tuplespaces. It is argued that the two-level parallel execution, both within and between objects, are well suited to scalable parallel platforms with shared memory nodes connected by high speed networks.
