It still amazes me how sometimes one word in another language can require hours of thought and cultural exploration before it can be understood...

There are some great #Farsi / #Persian / #Iran   #idioms in this article! Persians are clearly an ancient, passionate, and dramatic people.

Choosing Chinese characters that evoke the origin as an information database would have been tricky, as it's hard to contain those within one East Asian country's borders. The Chinese word for "information" is a bit confusing to Japanese readers, who are used to seeing "information" written in Kanji that mean "spy" in Chinese, and that might have hit a little too close to home for Oracle.

Sad. This has more to do with desperation for funding. Learning a computer "language" is more like memorizing a specialized subset of English syntax for working with logic and math. It is not the same as learning to communicate in another human language.
