Heisenberg's back!

A long time ago (longer than I care to remember), I made the analogy between Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and large-scale data consistency (weak/eventual consistency). It got reported by InfoQ too. Over the weekend I came across a paper from friend/colleague Pat Helland where he made a similar analogy, so I figured I'd mention it here. What's that they say about "great minds" ;) ?
