David,

That is something we were talking today at the BOF at WWW. "How can I find
URI". Hopefully tomorrow's session we will come up with interesting
solutions. Currently, you need to know the URI (unfortunately). Same thing
follows for the other problem. Right now, you need to know the datasets and
what vocabularies to use. Personally I envision a shift from a developer
prespective. Instead of learning APIs, you learn the common vocabularies.
