Hm. Let’s see, a data service that doesn’t allow you to do joins. Ugh! Gack! Pfffftttht! And yet Scoble (or should I call him Scoble 2.0?) thinks it has the potential to kill off Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL in one swoop. Combined revenues for the three established players: like one trillion dollars. Scoble is eating the magic Web 2.0 mushrooms again.
Love this comment by Karim on Scobleizer.com, which includes this gem:
And charging people for CPU usage? Didn’t that die with punch cards? 1974 called and wants its pricing model back.
Over at TechCrunch, Erick Schonfeld proves that he was a marketing major in college. Or he’s eating the same mushrooms that Scoble is. I’d like to take a moment to paraphrase the immortal Michael Corleone:
If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it’s that you should take starry-eyed blog posts about The Next Big Thing with a grain of salt.
