Re: [zigzag] DM.. / multidim DBMS vs ZZ construx

Well, they're both multidimensional,
 meaning they register and keep track of
 traits along many axes.

However, the DBMS is basically two dimensions
 (row and columns),
 whereas the ZZspace *constructions*
 may themselves be in many dimensions.

Hope this helps.  Best, Ted N.
