Names are always interpretable by definition, hence their inherent 
ability to provide denotation (signification) and connotation 
(description).

Each of the following identify (denote and connote) entities (things) 
that could the be the subject, predicate, or object of an RDF statement:

 file:{doc}:uriReferent
 http://<cname>/doc#uriReferent

How these names are interpreted (resolved to connotation) is a function 
of the naming mechanism (in this case URI scheme), which is why HTTP URI 
based names are so useful re., HTTP networks i.e., you have name => 
description document resolution baked in.

This is why Linked Data boils down to:

1. Naming entities (things)
2. Using HTTP URI based Names
3. Providing useful information in the docs to which HTTP URIs resolve 
-- e.g., an entity description using RDF statements, in your preferred 
notation
4. In your entity description document, refer to other entities using 
their HTTP URIs -- net effect, your Data Web is extended.
