Building Data Applications – One Piece at a Time

My colleague Steve Runge (Logos bio, blog) made a new connection for me today, between the kind of data work we do at Logos and an old Johnny Cash song. I won’t spoil the surprise if you haven’t heard the song (and we don’t do it by stealing!), but there’s a commonality to the methodology: fact by fact, relation by relation, that’s the way to build a database. And with enough time and perseverance, when you’re done you too can say “… ’cause I have the only one there is around.”
