Jon Pither on bi-temporality

This is a great talk: “State of XTDB” by Jon Pither. He talks about the advantage of being able to take an existing dataset and load it into a temporal database, but get the database to backdate events to the past, since, after all, you’ve got data from the past that has never been in a temporal database before right now. Fixes one of the biggest problems with temporal databases.
