/ Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> was heard to say:
| * KD 008
| 3. Interaction
| """Communication between agents over a network about resources involves  
| URIs, messages, and data."""
| This sentence, and in fact the paragraph, is a bit obscure. Maybe  
| something on the line of:
| 	When two agents (piece of software) communicates
| 	about a resource, they exchange a message which
| 	includes data and which is identified by an URI.
| Metadatas are data. It's just a kind of data, and data are always  
| metadata of something else. I'm not sure to explicit the three levels  
| (data <- metadata <- metadata) you have given is useful or if you do,  
| explain in more detailed context.

I suggest the editor tinker with this paragraph a bit along the
lines suggested.

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> | Everything should be made as simple as
http://nwalsh.com/            | possible, but no simpler.
