  1. I started using [ :_ | _ doSomething: param ] in my VW code because I'm used to using _ in pattern matching code to mean 'don't care' (in the many languages that support destructuring). It means I don't have to cognitively deal with a parameter name. I'd prefer the even more concise (and not uncommon) anonymous block params e.g. [ %1 doSomething: param ]. Heresy!

    BTW: I think your ducking should be more aggressive, preferably to silence :) It's quite difficult to understand the speech during your intros/outros.
