Vociferous Ignorance

Channing Walton - Monday July 17, 2006

This is a good article – sums up many of my feelings about software in general, databases are no exception.

The article sums up Vociferous Ignorance as:

  1. Lack of knowledge and understanding of, and appreciation for data fundamentals in general, and relational concepts, principles and methods in particular
  2. Unwillingness to let 1 stand in the way of pronouncing extensively on the subject
  3. Inability and/or unwillingness to address evidence/proof of 1, and/or to reason
  4. Lack of interest—often admitted—in truth and correctness
  5. Primary focus on self promotion and appeasement of the industry by riding fashion fads, or telling (uninformed) audiences what they want to hear

There it is.
