More to come…
Today, someone asked me if I was going to give a talk anytime soon about C++0x, the next C++ standard. I’ve blogged about it before, notably here. But I haven’t yet prepared a talk about C++0x as a whole — in the meantime, I pointed that person to the following talks, and I thought other people might enjoy knowing about them too. They’re all by experts who are active standards committee members participating in the evolution of C++, and at least one of the names is probably familiar:

Maybe we need an unreality check.
