Regarding the Sinatra/Node vs. Rails for API discussion, Yehuda posted a guide on github about a month ago about using Rails for APIs and what it buys you (http://bit.ly/HzHgKA). Steve Klabnik also has a lot of good blog posts/articles on the topic (Steve's Hypermedia API reading list: http://bit.ly/HqVNfQ). Hopefully this is helpful.
Sushant, Steve has a post in there about HATEOAS specifically that might be helpful (http://bit.ly/HlXGd9).

great. really enjoyed the topic and the speaker
Interesting, useful--and even entertaining!
Great talk, really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend these videos on general best practices for APIs: (bit.ly/17Yl0W) and (bit.ly/HrmcGI).
Fun and very informative. Impressive. Love the discussion format.
Very entertaining pop culture references! :-)
The backstreet boys are more than just defining musicians of a generation. They are phenomenal API builders. Guille did a great job!
Guille - Thanks for covering the topic. On the topic of being fully RESTful aka HATEOAS on links - any thoughts on how to represent multiple links of the same rel e.g. I have two rel:self one for api http://example.com/api/lessons/1 and one self for web use http://example.com/lessons/1-for-fractions note the api namespace on one and not the other. Do you perhaps have both rel:self but have an addnl attribute to distinguish? Also fyi: https://github.com/apotonick/roar
