I threw together this diagram today and put those URI paths in to 
communicate their purpose in a concise way.

I hope that people familiar with RESTful APIs can look at bits of text 
like "POST /evan/activities" and have a rough idea of how that resource 
would behave.

Please just take them as extremely brief sketches of an API component 
and not a proposal for a naming convention.
