I have, with others, just been trying to teach students at Eswc summerschool about httprange14.

This idea - above - is I think absolutely central to thinking about our problems successfully: it engages the idea of 'authority' and source. When we talk about eg 'information resources' or about 'you cant GET the real world think', we distort REST (since it is all about OO-esque encapsulation) and distract from the core problem: who are we getting stuff from?
