I'm not sure what it is about REST that requires use of The Dialogue but it worked for me and, judging by Sam's Meme Map, it's definitely working in Duncan Cragg's The REST Dialogues and Pete Lacey's The S stands for Simple.

If Dialogues aren't your style, Bill Higgins has a new two part series on Ajax and REST: Part 1 and Part 2.

It's times like these I wish I was still in heavy research, discovery, and advocacy mode with REST and Web Architecture. I've been spending the past year deep in the database, which feels like the other side of the development universe.
