Really nice article Ryan. I remember I in the asp.net world the concept of services is really strong. Beyond nicer readability Services are considered a fundamental component of an application for handling business logic.
In Ruby achieving great code readability is often harder due to developers having multiple possible ways of separating responsibility based on taste. But separating business logic isn't exactly emphasised as well as it could be which leads often hard to read code. Although mostly a nice feature I sometimes see the flexibility offered by Ruby language as its curse too.
