On primary and secondary things

25 years after publication of my first academic papers involving C++, I’m retiring from active involvement with the language.

I’ve spent the last quarter century focusing almost exclusively on C++, and that’s caused me to push a lot of other things to the sidelines. 25 years of deferred activities begets a pretty long to-do list. The topmost entry? Stop trying to monitor everything in the world of C++. :-)
