a: Information ~
What: I like the analogy. Information and food, as measured in ($/bytes) or ($/calories),are as inexpensive as ever. The problem is that the quality of the information is variable like food. All bytes and calories are NOT created equal. One page of Gettysburg address is quite different than 1 page of magazine print. Likewise 1000 calories or Fish Oil is much better for you than 1000 calories of bacon lard.Although the bacon lard does taste good.

What: "Cognac is made of wine, and not just one varietal or vintage, it is a carefully crafted blend, cared for and created layer upon layer to produce something otherworldly when done correctly. Cognac is crafted by real artists, masters who guide the spirit through it's distillation and aging, they understand how to bring together the different grapes, wines, cognacs to deliver something that is greater than the sum of its parts. Information is like that, it takes in data, from many different systems, formats, time periods and through analytics is able to give the engineer, scientist, executive, whomever something meaningful and beautiful out of all that chaos. Knowledge workers and data scientists are like those artists who blend the cognac."

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.
