Web 2.0 and Databases Part 1: Second Life

"Our most interesting war stories don't generally involve the database - yes once we lost data and had to roll back the world a few hours, but who else can claim downtime due to grey goo? Perhaps the best illustration of the lesson above is a story of success. Lots of people have memories and/or fears of racing to the colo to fix the one machine that's bringing down the system; we can bring spare dbs on line from the comfort of our own homes, and worry about repairs at our leisure. 'I can add database capacity in my underwear!'"

Sometimes I feel guilty for giving away the punchlines in my blog links. Hehe.
