“We walk the corridors, searching the shelves and rearranging them, looking for lines of meaning amid leagues of cacophony and incoherence, reading the history of the past and of the future, collecting our thoughts and collecting the thoughts of others, and every so often glimpsing mirrors, in which we may recognize creatures of the information.” - The Library of Babel, Jorges Louis Borges

What is a database?

Graph Databases

Facebook/Google Graph Search Neo4j SPARQL queries

Categorical Databases

David Spivak’s ologs

The Age of Wire & String

Here we discuss symmetric monoidal categories, string diagrams, quantomatic and more.

Rhizis in the World

Here we discuss real world software that relates to thinking on categorical databases. This includes David Spivaks olog prototypes, the Rhizi Project, and perhaps other graph database projects that have the potential to evolve categorically: Google Graph Search, Facebook Graph Search, etc.
