- gluecon: ☞ Why the “NoSQL” moniker is useful - for now ¶
Someone that gets it:
The NoSQL moniker is, frankly, about as good as it gets for an early adopter technology. Why? Because it’s polarizing. Of course, the engineers hate it — it doesn’t *accurately* describe anything about what’s going on there (in case you haven’t heard, engineers love accuracy and precision). However, when a new technology is gaining ground, marketing matters. And when marketing matters, the BEST thing you can have is a “storyline” that writes itself for the journalists, analysts, etc that will help to distribute these ideas inside of enterprises.
