Hi all,

A common theme in previous discussions was identity.

Is an 'Invariant View or Perspective on a Thing' identified? always?
Alternatively, can it be anonymous/unidentified?

If identified, has it a unique identity?

If identified, what's the identity like? a URI? a IRI?

It this URI also a resource locator (URL), which can allow us to 
dereference this
'Invariant View or Perspective on a Thing'?

It would be good to discuss these questions, in the hope of reaching
