I'll be there in spirit! Like Ed, I can see some of the benefits of 
going to an object database, but at the same time being from a 
relational database background I feel that the relational model has long 
solved all real-world database problems. There is a place for being 
relatively rigid (the backend database) and there is a place for being 
relatively flexible (the business layer and the ui layout). Dialog is 
good. Let's talk about the pros/cons of both models, so that at least 
each side understands one another.
