    Choose the data compression algorithm based on the specifics of your data. For example, if you are working with lots of short strings, take a look at [*SMAZ](https://github.com/antirez/smaz).*

    Take a look at this. Idea behind it seems nice, but it's fixed dictionary ("codebook") was clearly made for English language, and the algorithm itself is really simple. How can we impove on this? Dynamic dictionary won't do, since you have to store it somewhere, nullifying benefits of using such algorithm. Beyond that I have no idea.
