Quick question about the actor design pattern



I was just wondering why the MVCS in nerdfeed needs an actor object(BNRConnection)? Couldnt the store handle the NSURLConnection delegate methods by itself? Or is it a general rule that stores should never be a delegate?



If you have a print copy of the book, the answer is on p.512 in the 2 paragraphs right above “The actor design pattern” heading.
