Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the W3C workshop on Linked Enterprise Data Patterns. My colleague Ora Lassila and I gave a presentation on the isues of identity in Linked Data. You can read our position paper and view our presentaion here:
Identity Crisis in Linked Data
It would seem that many share the same frustrations that Ora and I have with the confusion between URLs and URIs, and the idea that URLs areÂ queries and URIs areÂ identifiers. Readers of this blog will note that over the past few years I have been trying to clarify the difference between a URL and a URI. I think it’s safe to say that even after multiple, detailed posts on the topic, the distinction between the two remains murky for some. Hopefully we can start to clear things up.
