You can find more information on the speaker's site:

The traditional approach to writing a daemon involves forking twice, closing input/output handles, chdir(), writing a pid file, becoming session leader, using syslog, and a lot of other nonsense.

In a mere 5 minutes I will show how you can remove all that from your script, and gain overall reliability by using a simple process-supervisor tool like Runit.
