Breaking news: Relational databases are no longer needed

I wasn’t aware of this:

It's not a relational system and, frankly, relational systems simply aren't needed any more. The whole concept of normalization and relational "thinking" for lack of better words came about because of disk space (I was a former DBA). SQL databases are very good at what they do, they succeed because they stick with ACID and are quite fast; I don't think it has anything to do with how good they are at relational theory.

But, he was a former DBA (apparently he isn’t a former DBA anymore), so he must know what he’s talking about.

Good to know.
