That is *awesome*!

Although, I always saw Eddie Scissors as more of a retelling of Frankenstein.

It is rather inaccurate. E.g.: «Imperative languages offer no protection against data races — maybe with the exception of D.»

Sounds mostly like a sales pitch for Haskell over C++, glossing over the main reason for why the highest performance parallell algorithms are risky: the actual hardware design.

If you don't want that highest speed then you most certainly can protect against data races for many problems in other languages, including C++.

This won't change until the hardware changes. Oh well, it kinda has, with GPU programming.
