All about databases

Oh my goodness, you cry in thrilled elation. A blog all about one researcher’s investigations into the vagueries and subtleties of database design?

Whilst I acknowledge that for a good proportion of the seven billion potential readers of this blog, the prospect of a blog about data is not going to compete with the universes of Twitter, YouTube and gathering fresh water (yes, I realise that not all of the seven billion spend their time idly wondering what to do with their computer-bound, office tarnished days) but for those happy few for whom this counts as a ‘hobby or interest’ on dating websites and LinkedIn profiles, a great day has dawned.

I’ll be filling these pages with interesting stuff I come across in my attempt to build the ultimate all-emcompassing “Global Intelligence System”, first reviews of which included the now-fabled “it’s not intelligent, and it’s certainly not global”. At least said critic acknowledged that it was a system, eh?!

Till next time, DBMS-fans.
