Graphs have piqued my interest as a way to model the world and our relationship to it as well as how the world relates to us. I love to take photographs. Photos provide a way to capture a moment in time. As the years go by, I see something different in each photograph I have taken and my relationship to that photo changes. A photo ten years ago shows familiar faces that had been around for years and years. Now that photo is a reminder of how those relationships have changes: some strengthen and most weaken over time. When that photo was taken, what was going on in the world? What were you doing. What were your friends and family doing. How did their actions change you? Why did you stop programing on that new fangled PC and switch to coding COBOL on a mainframe?
So I intend to model those relationships and store them in a graph database so that I will remember them and perhaps understand my relationship to the world a little better. As a friend said to me, “do something good for your future self..”.
