 bad design of Active Record.

I have an API. It's built with a RESTful extension over Active Record, and some endpoints provide PUT methods to upload files. By a REST design we create an entity with `POST /video` first, and then upload a video file with `PUT /video/{id}/data`.

How do we get the `{id}`? The essential solutuion is UUID generated by a client. It allows API application to be stateless and scale it, use master-master replication for databases and feel yourself a modern guy.
If you have Postgres — lucky you, feel free to use the built-in UUID data type and close this article.
