SELECT * from A MASH UP B

As an oldthinker, I find it hard to get excited about these 'web 2.0 mash up' thingys. Writing software that doesn't do much and doesn't scale particularly well isn't exactly hard. And back in the 90s when we wanted to join data together we used an inner join. Perhaps we should rename the JOIN keyword in SQL to 'MASH UP', then we can feel cool again.
