Andrew,I'm actually looking to learn these things. I'll let you know if I ever manage to teach myself enough to make a useful hour presentation. I'd love to hear a platform agnostic talk on Smart pointers. That might help me apply the win32 specific examples.
As far as COM, its still relevant. For example, if you want to host the CLR in an executable (which I have a need to for a pet project), the CLR itself is a COM object. Secondly I'm going though Windows Internals by Mark Russinovich which covers the internals of windows and the C API. What it doesn't cover, and what my next obvious knowledge gap will be after that, is COM.
Finally I'd be interested in a talk about your error_or project. It might be an applicable pattern to other languages.
