   RE: [xml-dev] Assumptions about URIs

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The problem is that one can't know what they are 
without using a process to choose.

Identification is a process for declaring identity. 
Data cannot be decoupled from process meaningfully. 
Berners-Lee got this wrong philosophically but 
right in implementation. 

Nothing lives in abstraction.  That is why the WWW 
is a spooky place.

It seems as though the problem with namespaces is that they use a method for
referencing resources to name abstract resources.
