Wow, that's excellent!  I couldn't agree more with you - I was a rails
convert, until I heard about a crazy framework called Seaside written
in Smalltalk of all things!  (actually, I first heard about it from
you and Leo talking with Avi on FLOSS Weekly)  I must say I was quite
skeptical, having watched Java overcome Smalltalk way back when.
Listening to you guys talk about Seaside though really struck a chord,
and I decided I'd take a look (I had to blow the dust off of my
"Discovering Smalltalk" book ... :-)  Honestly though, I haven't
touched any of my rails projects since that freakin' podcast - I've
been completely submersed in Seaside, and loving it!  Please, talk to
Tim - "Hey Tim - remember when people only knew O'Reilly as the
company that published the "Learning Perl" book?  Guess what, I've got
another great idea ...".
