Seen at the ghetto coffee shop down the block: A magazine from 1968 with an article entitled “COMPUTER DATA BANKS: Do they know too much about you?”
Some congressman had started a committee to investigate the all of these “data banks” with airlines and hotels and so forth and discover how nothing was stopping anyone from connecting them all with phone lines and making all of that information easy to retrieve…Interesting enough.
CM reacts, “What makes more sense the word databank or database, personally I would say databank.”
So it seems we have a new (dead) word on our hands that must be used. Database, henceforth you shall only answer to “databank”!
