    Ok, I'm reviving this thread from MD.

    A couple days ago we had a discussion about NoSQL, and about Clay working on some Squabble code and how to properly model a shack-style threaded comments system that was performant.

    I started looking at something like CouchDB, and started modeling a thread as a JSON object, but I think it quickly got out of hand and it was obvious Couch wasn't the way to go.

    action roommate mentioned graph databases, and I remembered that I had started looking at Neo4J, an open-source "nosql" object graph database. I also found a pretty slick JRuby wrapper for it, and I've been playing around a little bit modeling a threaded comment system,and it seems to be working quite well so far.

    Anyway, my next steps are to recursively display a post with its comments, and have some sort of web interface for creating comments.
