I was really excited by Yehuda Katz's talk " Bridging The Gap - Using Rails To Write Dry Rich Client Applications" as this is was I am evangelizing since years, use Rails as an API with all the goodies it has to offer and create "fatter" client applications that are more compelling to use.

Konstantin Guericke said at one of our soapboxes : " If Gap can figure out how to take money from the customers on my site by advertising but I cannot, there's something wrong here. "

…website service which is free to use but has Gap t-shirt ads on it - it means that Gap has figured out how to get money from your website visitors but you have not. That's kind of sad.
