/ pat hayes <phayes@ihmc.us> was heard to say:
| what it is that y'all are saying in these various documents. The words
| "resource" , "representation of" and "on the information network" are
| yours, not mine or the semantic web's.  Right now, I don't think
| anyone could make sense of what y'all seem to be saying, which is why
| Im making a fuss about it.

I don't see how these definitions can possibly help, but I think
they're consistent and I think I believe them.

resource = anything at all: real, imaginary, conceptual, fantastical, or mundane
representation of = something which portrays a resource; most often in the arch doc
     a bag of bits with a MIME type and other metadata, though I'm not prepared
     to state that that's the only meaning it ever has without another careful reading.
on the information network = has a URI

                                        Be seeing you,
