Recent postings have been more about the “theory” behind the wonderful world of NoSQL and less about how to implement a solution with a NoSQL platform. Well it’s about time that I changed that.

For many the consumer to consumer (c2c) version of Facebook’s long available business-to-business and business-to-consumer offerings was a bit more of the “creepy” vs. the “cool” of the social media content. However, I think it will have the impact of opening people’s eyes on how their content can and probably should be used for search and other analytical purposes.
