Hi All,

I'm going to (try and) completely forget the driving questions I've 
had for a long time, namely "what does a URI name?", httpRange-14, and 
the like. My constant posturing and making bold statements in order to 
get some (dis)agreement/feedback isn't doing anybody any (real) good.

I do feel like I've made some progress at last, but it gets lost any 
time I try to define what a URI refers to, or apply what I've figured 
out to that question.

So, I've added myself to the AWWSW home page (hope that's ok?) with 
the Individual aim of:

Nathan Rixham would like to have precise definitions for those 
elements of web architecture which are at the intersection of the 
HTML/Web App, Semantic Web and REST communities, where the definition 
of those things matches "reality" and can be found agreeable by the 
respective communities. The purpose of this is to be able to quickly 
remove some things from the equation when answering difficult 
questions, to have some constraints to test specifications against, 
and to aid answering the other members questions.

Tomorrow I'll add a new page to the wiki (again, if that's ok) which 
will hopefully grow to be a collection of precise definitions of 
certain elements of the web, when a time comes that I'm happy with 
one, I'll post it to the list in order to seek some agreement, and if 
we can add it for discussion at the telecon, if there's time.

An example would be:
But more refined.

I believe taking this approach will cut my noise on list and perhaps 
bring some measure of progress, for me personally at least.

Is that okay with everyone?
