Regarding "the database will manage itself". I remember back in college in
1983ish, the tale then was "programmers won't be needed as programs will be
written by computers". I'm still waiting.
And if the database does manage itself, we DBAs will have more time to sort out
the cr4p code causing all the performance problems!
I for one, won't hold my breath.
