May be a few more examples would have helped understand the concepts of caches better but overall the lecture was good. Regarding the analogy for banks and interleaving, I thought it was a bit lengthy and a bit round about. There must be a simpler analogy somewhere out there. While I believe your analogies are helpful at first, could you spend more time giving more concrete technical examples of concepts rather than so many long analogies? I really enjoyed this lecture. We covered a lot of ground, and I learnt some concepts that were totally new for me. Looking forward to the next one. I think you should go through the "weaker" cache formats at a quicker pace so students would not be confused about less efficient methods. Otherwise it is a clear explanation of caches. The lecture was just right for me. Please discontinue the use of very light colors in your slides (ie your lecture 7 slide 12). I cannot see it on the screen and it does not print well either. I thought everything was clear and concise. I think that instead of having people ask questions every slide you should finish explaining the subject (every 2 or 3 slides) and then open the floor for questions. That way you won't have people getting ahead of themselves so much. But don't get me wrong, I really appreciate the fact that we can ask a lot of questions during lecture, even if it slows us down. The class discussions about caches that we had helped me understand the concepts very well. This lecture was also well paced , in some earlier lectures we would have understood more if we had gone slower....
