Martin Fowler recently wrote a multi-slide blog post on Schema Data Structures.  Here's a quote on the content from the first slide of the post - you can read the rest by clicking on the link below. 

In recent years, there's been an increasing amount of talk about the advantages of schemaless data. Being schemaless is one of the main reasons for interest in NoSQL databases. But there are many subtleties involved in schemalessness, both with respect to databases and in-memory data structures. These subtleties are present both in the meaning of schemaless and in the advantages and disadvantages of using a schemaless approach.
