Re: When NoSQL Makes NO Sense
What about  Datalog over SQL which i guess has a cleaner semantics and facilitates program understanding and more expressive, in particular for recursive queries.

When NoSQL Makes NO Sense
I read the headline on your story wrong, and now I think I have a natural sequel for you: When NoSQL Makes NO Sense,

Are you seeing examples of the technology being applied inappropriately?

That's sequel, not SQL, btw.

Whats next...
I suspect that in 2014 we will be hearing a lot about in-memory databases, since I/O communication between the processor and hard drives have been a big bottleneck, analysis etc keep getting more demanding -- the need for applications to be located in-memory becomes more apparent.
