    Could Channel 9 organise more of these rather than only at PDC?

    Why can't every day be Christmas, or at least have it once a week?

    I agree, but determine that these panels are a bit special, consequently saved for when occasion arises

    Yes, you are right, I should fully qualify my question. How about "could we have more like this with the people available at Microsoft?" ie. between the language heads of C#/VB/F# plus any visitors or the like? Or even the sub languages heads like LINQ, RX, Entity, Windows, etc as they have similary problems to deal with in their own way.

    We will do panels this year as recorded sessions or even live from the Channel 9 Studio.

    Hope you enjoyed the panel at PDC10! You can (re)watch it here: http://bit.ly/bU23S2

    I did. The issue of modularity and security brought up by Herb is very interesting as it is something that programmers have to consider and have in their mind every day. No one wants the label of "your code has a zero day bug!". But if you can program in the mind of moularity and security is a side benefit, then sign me up.

    I'd also be interested to hear more on Anders thoughts of concurrency, but I got the impression that it's still a too hard basket as you really need three things, 1 thread per core, async per thread, immutable data when concurrent (freezable collections and the like) and scaleable performance which really requires a new language as the concept count is too large. Someone on the WPF team should have done a concept count with MVVM.

    in particular somebody should do a panel between the people in charge of all the conceptually similar (in that they're all some variation of "mapping one type system to another", but they all end up feeling like entire frameworks in themselves ...) "data binding/model binding/serialization/schema mapping" parts of WPF, WCF, EF, ASP.NET MVC, ..., with the language people moderating.
