"Computer science is like martial arts and poetry; self-defense and self-expression. I feel like a superhero in training to save the world, acquiring the ability to defend myself and others in the technological universe."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
