Yesterday I discovered CouchDB. It’s a little early, but I want to give people who are interested some links to have a look at, if they are interested.

To play with it, have a look at the many APIs in practically any language on the wiki. Things in my mind while looking at CouchDB: is this the same transition in the database space as dynamic typing is to static typing in programming language space? Should Amazon’s SimpleDB really be this? And: how the hell can this scale?

Update: a comparison between SimpleDB and CouchDB.
