Hi Stefan,

Happy to see your drawings again. Love the piece!

Testing your piece as a layperson here :)

I’m also particularly interested in the drawing at the end:

* what’s a ‘probe’?
* do you have a drawing or an analogy to help further break down the
distinction in the statement: “So, do you really have a data warehouse or
just a database with tables?”
* You’ve mentioned what can go wrong in an actual warehouse when things get
messed up - I wonder if you have a way of conveying in a simple way the
ways you can actually mess up data warehousing?

Thanks for sharing - would love to hear more,
