The internet is an amazing place! It is generally a positive experience. It's a place where we can live a virtual life, chatting with friends on Social Networking sites, sharing messages and emoticons. We can create an account with an eCommerce site and browse products that we might want to buy. We can pay for it electronically, too. When we're hungry we can go to a food delivery website and order our favourite dishes. Wow! Is there nothing we can't do?! But what most people don't realise is that most websites are really just boring databases made to look pretty!
Look at the image above - users connecting to the different online services never thinking of the database that works tirelessly in the background.
