Have a Seat on the Couch

No idea why it took me so long to find CouchDB, but I will be watching its development closely and will start probing the source once I have a better handle on Erlang. Highlights include a RESTful API, a bevy of clients to talk with that RESTful API (Ruby, Python, Java, JavaScript), data replication for reliability, and off-line capabilities. I can't think of a much better use of Erlang on the server side and I love the use of SpiderMonkey for a Query language , that's plain brilliant and something people should use more of.
