Database documentation as poetry
Reading the Prisma docs and found this lovely section on data modelling (it's more theory than true product docs - sorely missing when it comes to DB stuff usually!)
It's really well written - I really like it!
Database documentation as praxis
This, in the docs of a DB library:
"The single most sensitive class of information with the most ramifications, bar none, concerns people. Information about people is necessarily political, and modeling a system in which humans participate both reflects and reinforces the politics of the modeler. Who enters or is entered into the system, in what capacities, with which characteristics assumed important or unimportant, visible to whom: politics, every bit of it. "
