Hmm. A good starting point seems to be at  
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-annotation/2002JanJun/0130 which  
describes how the process works... (that's some way further into the  
thread, after the discussions that strike me as figuring out if it is  
possible to talk to each other which are more interesting in historic  
terms than for technical solutions).

some more flesh on the bones at  
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-annotation/2002JanJun/0156  
algthough Nick had to sleep before finishing it, and the demo linked there  
is not currently available from webthing.

I haven't chased back to the earlier thread mentioned in that one, which  
covers more discussion, not the mentions in the old ER list. (I remember  
working for an organisation that said cool URIs don't change. Did they  
only mean HTTP URIs, or just some HTTP URIs?)

cheers
