Shane,
 
Wonderful!

It is no about what is more appropriate ;) It is about 'about WHAT do I want to say something'.
 
If you say: 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Monument <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Monument>  comprises 13 images' is completely different compared to 'http://dbpedia.org/page/Washington_Monument <http://dbpedia.org/page/Washington_Monument>  comprises sandstone'.
 
In the first case you describe a property of an HTML page (an information resource) in the second case you talk about an obelisk, a real-world entity (a non-information resource).
 
You may also wanna have a look at what Ed Summers did at [1].
 
Cheers,
Michael

Subject: geo location tutorial cut




As per my action item Thursday, I have taken a shot at preparing a
tutorial on the why and how of geo location annotation via RDFa.  The
tutorial itself is at http://rdfa.info/wiki/Geo-tutorial <http://rdfa.info/wiki/Geo-tutorial>  - the main
tutorials page is at http://rdfa.info/wiki/Tutorials <http://rdfa.info/wiki/Tutorials> .

I don't think the format of this tutorial is perfect, nor is its
content.  It is a first cut.  Thanks to Roland, Michael, and Manu for
providing input already.  Please look it over and either make changes or
mail your comments to this list.

One question that has already been posed to me for which I do not have a
good answer:

In the examples I point to the dbpedia entry for the Washington Monument
as the definitive *subject* I am describing.  There is also a Washington
Monument web page from the US Government.  Why is that not a more
appropriate subject?  I use a link to it in the examples so there is
something to "click" on.  And if that were the subject for everything,
is there a way to update the markup so that we wouldn't have to
duplicate the URI?

Can't wait to get feedback on this - fire away!
