2008-04-01: The Semantic Web Education and Outreach (SWEO) Interest 
Group has published an Interest Group Note Cool URIs for the Semantic Web.


The Resource Description Framework (RDF) allows users to describe both 
Web documents and concepts from the real world people, organizations, 
topics, things in a computer-processable way. Publishing such 
descriptions on the Web creates the Semantic Web. URIs (Uniform Resource 
Identifiers) are very important to the Semantic Web, providing both the 
core of the framework itself and the link between RDF and the Web. This 
document presents guidelines for the effective use of URIs in the 
context of the Semantic Web.


Many thanks to Tim Berners-Lee who invested much time and helped us 
understanding the TAG <http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/> solution by 
answering chat requests 
<http://chatlogs.planetrdf.com/swig/2006-10-29#T17-42-28> and 
contributing many emails with clarifications and detailled reviews of 
this document. Special thanks go to Stuart Williams, Norman Walsh and 
all the other members from TAG, who reviewed this document and provided 
essential feedback in June 2007 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2007Jun/0075.html> and 
September 2007 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2007Sep/0090.html> about 
many formulations that were (accidentially) contrary to the TAG's view. 
Also special thanks to the Semantic Web Deployment Group 
<http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/>'s members Michael Hausenblas, Vit 
Novacek, and Ed Summers' reviews and their review summary sent in 
October 2007 <http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/wiki/ReviewCoolURIs>. We 
wish to thank everyone else who has reviewed drafts of this document, 
especially Chris Bizer, Gunnar AAstrand Grimnes, Harry Halpin, Xiaoshu 
Wang, Henry S. Thompson, Jonathan Rees, and Christoph Päper. Susie 
Stephens reviewed the document, managed SWEO, and helped us to stay on 
track. Ivan Herman did much to verify that the W3C requirements are met 
and submitted the note.
