Nice to see another talk, thanks! I particularly liked when you touched on the spiller/filler operation — which suggests a topic for the next talk: some details re Mill context-switching; interrupt handling, thread management, OS kernel calls, etc.
Speaking of which, how do you envision handling real-world I/O? Task (and tax) a Gold Mill as a monoprocessor, or have (say) a few satellite Tins and DMA engines keeping the Gold fed and happy? Given the Mill’s modest transistor budget, it seems that a message-passing multicore approach is not unreasonable…
