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.
