Graph Databases

Something that has really resonated with me over recent weeks is the concept of the graph database. I’ve spent most of my professional career railing against RDBMS software and the frustration of database cost/scale/performance, and although graph databases (or key-value databases) won’t solve the database dilemma, it’s very encouraging to find such a vibrant community of experts trying to tackle these issues.

Here is a great presentation which introduces the concepts - http://markorodriguez.com/Lectures_files/risk-symposium2009.pdf
