It looks like MySpace gathered a lot of data of some value. (What kind business doesn't -- duh!) Therefore, price it properly and sell it. A user want to query some data -- then provide an an interface to query it. A query in question is just something like

select * from persons where status = single minus
select * from persons AS OF Timestamp sysdate - 7 where status = single

Alternatively this poor (pun intended) guy had to write a script that navigates through a lot of pages, store those data and query it. A web front-end is clearly not an interface suited for querying -- hence those performance problems.

I imagine some "clever" architect at MySpace right now is suggesting to create some services on top of their web front-end. What a waste! Received on Wed Jun 21 2006 - 14:19:29 CDT
