Webtuesday Lightning Talk Slides

This week, there was another webtuesday with lightning talks in Zürich. Leo and I each did a little talk:

“StubidDB” by Leo

Leo still dreaming about dumber databases. His own creation StupidDB might sound familiar to you…

“I’m in Ur Browzerz…” by Maarten

Harry had the idea to locate your users based on their history. I tried it out, giving another 8 minutes of fame to an old and well-known hack. The slides can be found here.

  2. Some of the concepts you’ve mentioned with “StupidDB” are in CouchDB (http://incubator.apache.org/couchdb/), it might be worth a look.

    I’m really interested in brainstorming with Leo, how can I contact him?

  6. @gerard: Well, yes! StupidDB is just much more stupid. Because it’s in a local net no security is needed and because of the high latency of the local net you can save even smaller objects.

    @stefan: It’s exactly what I did expect, sombody will implement it for me ;-). BTW you got mail.
