RE: OT: sheltered little world i live in -> NODB?

Exactly.
It started off so strong with all the beer talk too!

From what I can tell, this guy is very well known and respected in the software 
development community.  Disheartening.

Chris,

So this person thinks that the use cases will be nailed down up front?
For some probably strange reason I find that to be quite funny.

If we idealize the problem and assume away all of the other details it really 
is just that simple.
Just have a "database" for each use case and when new use cases develop write 
some interface between the data stored for each of the use cases.
Each can reside in memory only.
Brilliant!

I think that it will only require one table with 1023 columns each with 
datatype anydata. That way it will be flexible. And it will only require one 
sequence.

From what I can tell, this guy has written a several very popular books and 
articles on software development.

Not sure why I'm posting this to the list other than the fact that I just 
didn't expect something like this to pop up in my RSS reader.
