I guess I’ve drunk the IT Kool-Aid — hey, naive optimism fuels world change! — but I deeply believe that technology applied right can do wonders for the world, revolutionizing organizations and individuals. I’ve seen and experienced many situations in which a great database simply made people’s lives better and more prosperous in many senses of the word.

So, as I think about what I’d like to see Quintify do, I want no less than it to contribute to mass prosperity. That’s not a phrase that is used often — Google reports only 3,730 occurrences — but it inspires me deeply. As Quintify databases one day power a gazillion businesses, life will be more satisfying  and more rewarding and more free for business owners and employees alike — the masses will better prosper.
