Re: [kcruby] Who wants to present next week?

I'd like to give a talk on the how-and-why of moving the bulk of your 
rails code from the activerecord models (which is often the default 
dumping ground) to the underused lib directory.  Many devs who learned 
ruby *through* rails (I was one) are hesitant to build classes that 
weren't cranked out by a rails generator.

We've all heard the mantra "Skinny Controllers, Fat Models".  The time 
has come for a strategy I like to call "Skinny Models, Fat Librarians"! 
If that sounds offensive, I myself have been both fat *and* a librarian 
in my lifetime :)

I can cover such issues as:

* What are the benefits? (spoiler alert: speed, and speed)
* What code would I pull out of a model, and why?
* Can I still fully test with RSpec? (yes, I'll show how)

How can I afford to bring you this amazing offer?  Because I stumbled 
ass-backward into it during a recent project building an API in rails.

Let me know soon if there's interest, so I can comfortably put off 
planning the presentation until Monday evening :)
