NoSQL: The Love Child of Google, Amazon and ... Lotus Notes | Wired Enterprise | Wired.com

Excerpt from an interesting NoSQL history lesson
"“If you look at every NoSQL solution out there, every one goes back to the Amazon Dynamo paper or the Google BigTable paper,” says Jason Hoffman, the chief technology officer at cloud computing outfit Joyent. “What would the world be like if no one at Google or Amazon ever wrote an academic paper?”
Well, the world would still have CouchDB, one of the oldest NoSQL databases. CouchDB creator Damien Katz wasn’t inspired by Google or Amazon or any other web giant. He was inspired by Lotus Notes, an online collaboration platform originally developed in the 1970s and ’80s."
