Good, hands-on stuff here, and a real eye-opener for anybody who assumes these next-gen databases come without compromises. It doesn't surprise me, then, that most of the NoSQL case examples I've seen have been applications that aren't quite as mission critical as, say, running a bank or trading floor.

Good enough analysis that I don't mind having "Call Me Maybe" stuck in my head. You mention Strange Loop - I hadn't heard of that show before, but it looks interesting. Would you recommend it for DBAs?

Yes, I would recommend Strange Loop for anyone looking to witness some really bright young people who are showing a number of really interesting things.
