This talk will explore the various alternatives relational databases for storing your data, and when they might be more applicable.
This will include recently touted "document-oriented" databases (CouchDB for instance), RDF, and Prolog, comparing the pros and cons of such systems to using the SQL based databases we all know (and probably hate ;-)
Lastly, I will introduce KiokuDB, a Moose based frontend to many such systems.
