RailsConf Keynote Videos

I wasn't able to make it to RailsConf, but I've been viewing the keynote addresses as they become available at ScribeMedia.

There is some good stuff here (despite other viewers' comments slamming the format - I'm just thankful for the content). Thanks, ScribeMedia!

For those speakers with slides, at least some of these are available on their respective sites.

I've appreciated what most of the speakers had to say, though I am as yet unconvinced of the merits of DHH's suggestion that we (kludgily?) use HTTP's "verbs" (PUT and DELETE, in addition to the usual GET and POST) for CRUD invocations - using the identical URL for each. I prefer the URL being explicit (not to mention more easily invoked).
