The future of awesome databases

Damien Katz’s blog post, The Future of CouchDB deserves a response.

Damien tackles difficult problems, thinking clearly and executing well. If he is focusing on Couchbase, then Couchbase will be outstanding.

Both CouchDB and Couchbase are domain-specific databases. Moreover, these domains intersect minimally. The projects represent non-overlapping magisteria; and one might say instead that the future of awesome datatabases is Couchbase.

We are interested in CouchDB’s domain, web applications modeled after the web itself: standard, decentralized, and skewed toward empowering regular people.
