Quotes about concurrency by AndersH

Yesterday a new 1-hour video interview on C# 4.0 was posted on channel9.

At some point the question is posed to Anders:
"What are some of the big issues that you are thinking about for the future?"
and Anders' reply (ffw to 39:56) identifies concurrency as the #1 thing:
"Concurrency is by far... profoundly changing... Moore's law... we've been ignoring concurrency because we could... now we can't... it is a damn hard problem..."
My favorite quote comes at 45:13 and includes hand gestures too:
"It is foolish to think that somehow we are going to be able to pepper concurrency on your code and you wouldn't need to modify anything in your apps today for them to run concurrently"
For the stuff in-between and to get the complete picture, watch the video.

I like the quote about recursion in that video:

"In order to understand recursion, you must first understand recursion."

Huseyin: That was my favorite as well :)
