The web of data will succeed *because* it conflates a thing and a web page about the thing.

- No Snooping
The act of reading, like the act of writing, is a pure, fundamendal, human act. It must be available without interference or spying.

- Socially aware cloud storage - Design Issues
There is an architecture in which a few existing or Web protocols are gathered together with some glue to make a world wide system in which applications (desktop or Web Application) can work on top of a layer of commodity read-write storage. Crucial design issues are that principals (users) and groups are identifies by URIs, and so are global in scope, and that elements of storage are access controlled using those global identifiers. The result is that storage becomes a commodity, independent of the application running on it.

- Alternative to 303 response: Description-ID: header From: Tim Berners-Lee
I did wonder about the following: in the case when the URI is not of
document, when currently we use 303,
then the server can return a document *about* it with an extra
header to explain to the browser
that it is actually giving you a description of it not the content of

- Using labels to give semantics to tags - Design Issues
This article discusses how the user interface metaphor of a luggage label cam used to associate metadata from well-defined ontology with tags from a particular context.
I heard of one online community which was considering making a system to allow one formally to state when one has committed to use a given tag in the same way as another person, or growing mesh of people. That would be a very interesting feature, as it would allow a useful definition to gain growing acceptance, to progressively move from being a private idea to being a group global standard.
- Linked Data - Design Issues
The Semantic Web isn't just about putting data on the web. It is about making links, so that a person or machine can explore the web of data. With linked data, when you have some of it, you can find other, related, data.
Like the web of hypertext, the web of data is constructed with documents on the web. However, unlike the web of hypertext, where links are relationships anchors in hypertext documents written in HTML, for data they links between arbitrary things described by RDF,. The URIs identify any kind of object or concept. But for HTML or RDF, the same expectations apply to make the web grow:
Simple. In fact, though, a surprising amount of data isn't linked in 2006, because of problems with one or more of the steps. This article discusses solutions to these problems, details of implementation, and factors affecting choices about how you publish your data.
- Use URIs as names for things
- Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names.
- When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information.
- Include links to other URIs. so that they can discover more things.

"This was a result of my being in a minority with this opinion on the Technical Architecture Group, and yet finding it the only one I could accept. This is related to TAG issue HTTPRange-14." (TBL)
