I've been finding that the more I talk about front-end frameworks, the more I'm trying to drive home the point that the way we build apps needs to change dramatically - and that we as Rails developers are the ones who should be building these tools. Things like Meteor (and our new app Hammer) are good examples of this - where the environment is turned upside down in order to make great new tools. I think every developer is capable of doing these things, so I think it's important to point out how easy it is for us to make everybody's lives so much easier and more fun.
