I started working with MySQL recently, and that sparked an idea in my head:
What kinds of values can a database hold?
Specifically, we live in a time where every person with access to a computer is amassing huge amounts of data (the pictures on my computer alone take up more than 100GB).
So what if it were possible to create a database that could contain more than just random data points? What if a database could contain whole files or folders? What if these files or folders could exist in multiple places within a database (all files are stored in a central pool, with symbolic links in the relevant tables)?
