I decided to deliberately omit accepting new data from the definition. I subsumed that under "reserving the value".

One can claim that data that is not updated loses value with time. The rate of decay could be different for, say, the area in square miles of US states and the latest trading prices of stocks. But that's a value judgement.

Also, it's not clear to me whether the value of newer data is added by the database itself, or by the process that adds the data. Clearly, they have to work together.

BTW, good point about the API. Received on Mon Apr 12 2004 - 20:19:27 CEST
