FWIW, my comments:

1) Videos are great communication tools, and nothing prevent us from 
making them, I suppose.
2) This RoR video was good stuff, especially for people building simple, 
self-contained apps.
3) I liked the ActiveRecords part, which is something we have to wait 
for the Java community to respond to (as Sylvian noted earlier today).
4) I liked the Scaffold concept, which we may replicate: not just 
samples, but ready-made apps to help people hit the ground running when 
developing an app. I mean, we could have a "reporting scaffold", or a 
"multi-channel publishing scaffold", or a "GIS scaffold" (you expected 
that, didn't you ?).

Stop the presses ! I've just seen the first 30s of Andrew's 
presentation... it looks great :)
