Brian Aker delivers the keynote speech at OpenSQL Camp: State of the Open Source Databases.
The presentation begins with:
"There is no way I'm going to tell you exactly where the future of databases go. We have way too many egos in the room to ever even begin a discussion..."
and ends with Aker saying,
"What the hell does that mean?"
My summary: open source databases are already ubiquitous, we need to make them better/faster/consume fewer resources.
Brian's summary: What part of my keynote surprised people? How ubiquitous bot nets are, and how they act as a big decentralized data store.
