Hi Phil, everyone,

Ah, a concrete example!

What I don't follow in this example, is why "criteria" has to be spelled out separately and isn't instead represented as a set of additional properties for a query/trigger/search/whatever to match against?  What, for instance, if the "trigger" is a plaintext search?  Say, I wanted to find something "delicious".  Would you then have to duplicate item/description/text into item/criteria?  I don't see how triggers would be any different than other property of a point of interest.

Anyway, I've cobbled together some draft text based on these discussions and Jonathan's draft charter and put it in the POI wiki:

While it's in a wiki, I think it's best if we discuss changes here, rather than have everyone make changes directly.  I'll distill the discussions into edits.
