   RE: [xml-dev] Jim Gray article on Next Generation Databases

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Progress in software and organizational design is like progress in the Kama
we've tried all of the positions, some more than once, 
some we enjoy and some hurt because we aren't flexible 
enough, and yet we keep the book open next to the 
night light.  

Our's is a pop culture.  That's why Bo Bice is winning.

Alan Kay points out an interesting bit of data:  Moore's 
Law gave us approximately a 40,000 to 60,000 increase 
in processor speeds while CPU architecture only gave us 
about a 50 increase therefore wasting about 1000% of Moore's 
Law on expedient architectures.


And so it goes.
