I don't think the presentation has anything new for those who know Date's work, except I guess the mention of 6NF (well, those three letters anyway :-). But it does do a very simple, in your face sell of ideas from the Third Manifesto. Almost a set of 'marketing' slides ;-).

I particularly like the 6 slide 'proof' of the claim that:

    Objects and a good model of inheritance are incompatible!

Whatever your views, it is worth a read.
