The business appellations are astounding.  SQL systems have an inherent
inflexibility in terms of rigid schemas.  Most of the world's data is not
rigid in terms of a frame.  Neo4J and other systems offer the ability to
add in a new attribute on an object without hiring an RDBMS expert to come
in and re-write the schema.    (01)

As we move to mobile, the ability to synch part of a graph from a server
to a mobile device is huge.  We're working on such a system and have some
very advanced concepts under way.  It is the future IMO but does levee a
lot of people scratching their heads as the nuances are subtle indeed.    (02)
