Organic Ribald Machines

These are the worst of times, these are the worst of times. I saw that somewhere the last day or two, but I don't remember where. Anyway, I'm reading these slides from a link on the PostgreSQL site. You *have* to see this. Eviscerates the ORM crowd. As much fun as a barrel of monkeys.

A quote or two (which I've said more than once):

ORMs encourage pathological iteration.

ORMs generally have bizarre transaction models.

ORM-think is one of the driving forces behind "NoSQL" databases.
