Today I learned that "single source of truth" is actually a technical term.
Because I'm doing a lot of integration work right now I'm hearing it a lot and thought it was just a trendy phrase that people have been throwing around.
Turns out it's more or less official industry terminology.

(By the way ... as someone once told me ... "You learn something new every day, or you die stupid.")

SSOT is pretty common term if you hang out with database guys....

Database guys are the funniest. As a philosopher, I feel right home there, with all the quirky lingo. I realized the connection far too late in my university years.

I had the weirdest prejudices about how boring database stuff was. Until I went to some lectures and fell in love.

What I relearned today: how fun it is to eat at a restaurant with philosophy profs.

Did it go anything like this?

Nope, it is more like applying technical terminology to every day life stuff. A bit like computer guys nerding out.

Database guys are some of the most rigid, inflexible people I've ever met.
SSOT isn't just a technical term for them, it's a way of life. And we're not even talking about data, we're talking about "there's ONE way to do it and don't you dare challenge my book learning with your real world pragmatism."

Oh, and TIL that there's a Pikachu somewhere in Riverdale and I'm probably going to end up making a trip there just to catch him.
