+# Designing Hypermedia APIs
+Rails did a lot to bring REST to developers, but its conception leaves the REST
+devotee feeling a bit empty. "Where's the hypermedia?" she says. "REST isn't
+RPC," he may cry. "WTF??!?!" you may think. "I have it right there! resources
+:posts ! What more is there? RPC? Huh?"
+In this talk, Steve will explain how to design your APIs so that they truly
+embrace the web and HTTP. Just as there's an impedance mismatch between our
+databases, our ORMs, and our models, there's an equal mismatch between our
+applications, our APIs, and our clients. Pros and cons of this approach will be
+discussed, as well as why we aren't building things this way yet.
