The NoSQL Fad

Adam D’Angelo[1]:

I think the “NoSQL” fad will end when someone finally implements a distributed relational database with relaxed semantics.

I believe that defining these relaxed semantics will actually lead to figuring out the origins of many of the NoSQL solutions—just as an example, relaxing the relational model would lead to options like the document model or the BigTable-like columnar model.
