Finally, I just want to point out that it took me a while to really get into Mongo because I had heard some horror stories about people losing data or it being slow or whatever. While some of those stories are definitely true, a ton of development time has gone into fixing those issues, and nowadays if you are experiences bad things then it's most likely just you doing it wrong. haha. With that said though I feel like Mongo does make it very easy to do some obnoxiously heavy query and shoot yourself in the foot, but maybe that's just a consequence of the flexibility and power available to you. The other great thing is that there are a ton of other people using Mongo right now so almost any issue you have can just be googled to find other people also experiencing that issue and stack overflow answers that will hopefully get you past the stumbling point. Let me know how you feel about Mongo and other object-based databases in the comments below!
