scaling aside) listing neatly the pluses and minuses.  This is being done by
someone who seems seasoned in data problems on RDBMS who is open to the
NRDBMS approach (Masters student seems to be his 2nd or 3rd career going by
his bio).

Along the way there are entertaining quotes and history.

The conclusion is that one day all of these NRDBMS doohickeys will just be
part and parcel of the one database soln.  For the moment they exist to the

Good read if an interest in this domain.
