BREAKING NEWS – A previously unknown book of quatrains by Nostradamus was recently discovered in a small church in Salon-de-Provence. Called “The Codex of Dyadic Sciences”, these works by the ancient French apothecary/prophet appear to predict a number of key breakthroughs in the field of information technology.
The Great Prophet Speaks Again
Most quatrains have been analyzed by a group of leading technologists and have yielded some truly amazing predictions. For example, consider this quatrain:
When the Vulpi of Fire enters its fourth dimension,
And the Cerulean Mark of the Northern Dominion passes ten,
And the steely Tri-color Sphere of the Wise Seekers enters infinity,
A new era of blissful creation will be unleashed upon the webbed craftsmen.
Experts believe that Nostradamus is describing a time when all three major browsers will fully support a set of web standards, finally making it possible to develop truly browser agnostic web applications.
The gift of Eich, relegated for such a long time,
Will descend upon the great iron,
When the magical abilities of its scrolls
Become apparent to to the Elixir Worshippers and the Gemstone Alchemists.
Even more impressively, Nostradamus manages to foresee the rise and fall of relational databases:
The Bearded Demi-god unleashed his kindred compendia,
And so it ruled for half a century,
Until an avalanche of datum
Revealed the Naysayers to be the true path forward.
More Work Remains
It should be noted that not all of the quatrains have been decoded by the experts. For instance, no one has yet determined the meaning behind this eery sounding prediction:
The mighty etherial nation created by the cherubic Hooded One
Will overwhelm its citizens with the howls of a million merchants
Until it drives them all away in an epic exodus
Into the solace of the azure fowl.
