thanks for deep diving into it, STL is huge but it evolves slowly… in terms of end-user programmer features – like network, graphics, and of course multi threading… threads, promises and futures – its just too low level

Is there any point to "lazy" senders except to separate out how concurrency works?
I was scratching my head on the early examples, why not just call the thing like any other callable object?

Wow, this Sender-Receiver abstraction is much simpler than coroutine promise + Awaitable APIs! Why can't this get built into the language instead of the currently proposed ugly coroutine interface?

Anyway very inspiring presentation. Really looking forward the concepts make their way to the standard.

Many of the concepts are very similar to Reactive Extension (Rx) already available in many languages including C++ (rxcpp). I wonder why there is no mention of Rx in the presentation.

just give us co_await operator overloading !
