I'm confused. Is "WaitUntil" actually "SkipUntil" ??? If what I thought I saw was right, this name is very misleading.
Audio is poor on WMV (High).
Very good video.
I would have liked to have heard Anders speculate on where we would be if Sun hadn't been so foolish as to drive Microsoft out of Java tool development. But perhaps this lawsuit, while petulant and pointless, turned out to give us something far better.
Why on earth do you want to require people to use Twitter when we've already joined Channel 9 and you have this setup already?
The whole "Don't forget to add one" is simply a hack. Threaded programming is hard, and this tool keeps it that way, it's just not up to the task.
It would be much better if this primitive was not added at all than released in this form.

HOW do you get ANY of this to work in HUGS ?
A prior posting said the examples were incorrect and needed to be:
let double x = x + x in double 4
BUT, if you do that and then try to enter:
you get: ERROR - Undefined varialbe "double"
This is supposed to be an INTRODUCTION. Why even suggest we install HUGS when it doesn't match anything presented?
If Haskell programmers value terseness, why do we need a LET that wasn't shown at any point in the lecture?
