Great talk (as expected) You took some risk with the polls, but in the end it paid off.

Great talk! Most talks contain multiple subjects and than it gets messy. There is too much information. Your talk contains a clear message and I really liked the repetition of the phrase "Generics aren’t coming" during your talk (so it is also a great title for your talk). You talk about the why and the possible solutions (which are suboptimal), but it is nice to know there are alternatives.

I like the speed of your talk, not too slow and not too fast. I like your pronunciation, you sound like a native English speaker. You're a nice speaker to listen to.
