Nice metaphor on how CouchDB can be used to make sense of unstructured data:
The big main room holds all your stuff. There is no organization at all. It’s just piles and piles of things. […] But the big main room is disorganized. How will you find anything? Fortunately, the librarian remembers it all. Just ask him, “Hey, where’s my globe?” And there’s your globe! Start scribbling.
You know what’s missing from this image?
