I basically disagree, but I think what's most interesting about this debate 
is that it appears to diverge in terms of value and definition.  I think the 
rise of web technologies drove the need for technologies optimized for PUT 
and GET performance, which consequently generated a whole new need for 
analytics tools.  All the while, the persistence tools used with the 
well-established RDBMSs highlighted how far one could push the definition of 
"normal", and how essential that definition even was.

I swear I am talking about data management here.  But I am laughing at the 
above paragraph now that I re-read it, and I think I'll stop here.
