Hi Sean (nice name) There's no way I'd give up my current job, but you should consider contracting the company I work for. Universal Mind specializes in Flex RIAs, and although they normally use ColdFusion for the backend, there are several people (myself included) with rails experience who would love to work on a rails-flex project. UM is mostly a service company, and we can fly contractors out to work with your team. We only have one product, and it happens to be in GIS :) Check out Spatial Key at http://www.spatialkey.com/. Hmm, we might even be a competitor -- although we're targeting law enforcement agencies at the moment, so many it would be fine Let me know if you'd like to be introduced to an account rep or would like more information, and good luck! ~sean
