I was lucky enough to attend this year's RailsConf 2008 and met many new friends and listened to many cool new ideas and discussions. Here is a link to the Vertebra solution presented by EngineYard's Ezra - http://brainspl.at/articles/2008/06/02/introducing-vertebra

This screencast demonstrates the following: * set up an Environment * place Creatures in the Environment * create Behaviors and add them to Creatures * create Actions for Behaviors to initiate * limit when Behaviors occur with Conditions * add EnvironmentalFactors such as wind "sudo gem install zyps" to install, or visit: http://jay.mcgavren.com/zyps By jaymcgavren If you run into problems viewing this screencast, you can access an MP4 version at http://rubyology.com/mp3s/zyps_screencast.mp4

Hey code monkeys! I built a proof-of-concept site for a RESTful service registry that is actually a RESTful API API. It's called www.ServiceReg.com and the site (which also functions as an API) allows developers to register RESTful Web services that can be used as a simple URL (including the POST, PUT, and DELETE verb-based queries). These simple URLs can be used in application, mashups, or even directly from the browser's address bar.
