Subject Clock skew
Date Mon, 27 Jun 2011 22:03:49 GMT
During writes, the timestamp field in the column is the system-time of
that node (correct me if that is not the case and the system-time of
the co-ordinator is what gets applied to all the replicas).
During reads, the latest write wins.

What if there is a clock skew ? It could lead to a stale write
over-riding the actual latest write, just because the clock of that
node is ahead of the other node. Right ?
