Thoughts on DrupalCon LA's Front End Forum

At DrupalconLA, I had the opportunity to go to an Open Front End Forum, wherein people chatted about the state of the front end. It was good fun, and the moderator did a good job of keeping the conversation flowing.

First question: "Where is the line that separates front end from back end?"

There was some disagreement on that. There is a line, there is no line, it's a permeable line... Going on to explore what defined front end or backend, people cited tasks and tools like PHP, HTML/CSS/JS, the browser, Photoshop, in favour of one argument or another.
