Here's a quick list just off the top of my head: * * All of the 37signals apps (Basecamp, Campfire, etc.) * Hulu * Scribd * LivingSocial * Penny Arcade * GitHub * Twitter (backend powered by a ton of stuff but their frontend is mostly Rails) * * Oracle.Mix * Shopify * * Crunchbase There are a ton more public facing and even more (as you mention) sort of "behind the firewall" type stuff.
