Ryan, thanks for the Railscast. As always, very helpful. Two quick questions:
#1) Will uid:string provide enough space for Facebook user ids?
#2) Would it be correct to say that string was chosen in order support a wide range of different id specifications, against a more efficient (but provider-limited) int or bigint?
