I'm not dead yet!

The Death of the Relational Database (via Media Influencer).

Sigh. I've been hearing about the death of the RDBMS for nearly twenty years. And the recurring problem with this thesis is not that the RDBMS is perfect, but that everything else is worse. Until someone comes up with an idea for a persistance mechanism that's better then an RDBMS across large parts of the problem space that the RDBMS solves, this is just idle hand-waving.
