It is as simple as using tornado, gevents, etc... But the problem is still one in most async solutions, if you need to block in one one call, all other connections will block. I am not talking about a socket block here though, but more of an intensive computation kind of block.
Erlang has a different solution for that.
What's the Erlang's solution?
I wouldn't say "Erlang has a solution" as this implies that it had the problem in the first place, which it didn't. Erlang's processes are concurrent, so there is no blocking in the same way that Node.js blocks. One process per request, one does not block on another unless you deliberately put something in place to make it happen.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
