    Good talk. Charles, agree that way forward for concurrency may be to do it less and copy more at least for shared state. As strange as that sounds. I have thoughts on a new sync primitive called "sync" that combines thoughts from monitor, reader/writer, and actors messages, but keeps things in the imperative world. Thoughts here. Comments welcome.

    I've really been enjoying these YOW! chats, but the audio has been (literally) painful.

    It sounds like you made a two-track recording — which is great, it's why your audio sounds so good! — but instead of mixing them down to one balanced stereo track, you just threw your track in the left channel and your guest's track in the right. This creates a "ping pong" effect that can give listeners using headphones a headache.

    To avoid headaches, the audio doesn't have to be a 50/50 mix either; you can do something like a 67/33 mix, so you're louder on left and your guest is louder on right, but there's still some of you on right and still some of your guest on left.

    @Chris Hanson: Sorry about that. Next time, I will do as you suggest. I simply didn't think about this while editing all of these videos. Of course, I wasn't wearing earphones while editing, but that's no excuse. Thanks for bringing this up.

    The video quality is excellent, but the sound...
