   RE: [xml-dev] URIs harmful

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

URIs seem to be the "zero" of web "THING" notation. 
They identify nothing, but without them, it is 
cumbersome to separate related things.

I do hope that all parties realize that even where 
a programmer can work with an abstraction, explaining 
it to the users costs more that it is worth.  I think 
I now comprehend the working meaning of "web of trust". 
The user asks the programmer why the http:// control 
is returning an error message the programmer tells 
them, "it doesn't matter. Trust me."
