[Grok-dev] [OT] Marketing: noSQL?

This year at the NoSQL conference in New York I asked the organizers the
same question, "how come ZODB didn't get any love?". I think the general
impression is ZODB isn't a standalone solution and its tied to Zope.
I think getting some ZODB love on the NoSQL website is a good start. But
that would just peek the potential users interest. Then they go to the
homepage for ZODB, http://wiki.zope.org/ZODB/FrontPage for more indepth
information. The site is on the Zope wiki and the page almost presents ZODB
as an afterthought for Zope rather then a technology on the forefront of
NoSQL. There's no clear message conveyed, "this is how wonderful ZODB is,
and its not just for Zope".
I think in order to make ZODB in eye catching strength of Grok it first
needs to be presented as a solution to the general Python community.
Just my thoughts...
