I gave a short lightning talk on Rack tonight at the NovaRUG. It's on slideshare here. Rack is really cool because it makes creating modular functionality really easy. For example, if you want to have exceptions mailed to you you can use the Rack::MailExceptions middleware, or if you want responses compressed you can add one line of code to a Rails app to use Rack::Deflater. Cool.
