RailsConf talks by rating

I did my talk at RailsConf today, which I thought went pretty well. I'm always keen to get some feedback though, so I slurped up the rating information from the RailsConf web site to see how I compared to the other speakers. I ended up 6th out of 61 talks, which I'm happy with. The Rails Envy guys were speaking at the same time as me and came second. I suspect that means I got less people attending and voting as a result. That might not have affected my position in the list though.

Here's the full list for those who are interested. This might still be changing over time as people review the sessions, but it should be reasonably indicative.

UPDATE: It's about seven hours since the conference finished now and some more reviews have come in. They must have been positive for me, because now I've moved up to second. I'll check again in a couple of days to see if anything else dribbles in.

UPDATE: It's a week later now, so I'm assuming the votes have stabilised. There's actually been quite a bit of movement. Here's the list from now. It may stil be changing, but I won't bother updating again. I've moved down to 6th, but I'm still amazed that I'm even that high.
