From the F2F [ Minutes] :

emma: Next: REST patterns for Linked Data

Jeff: Based on OWL, there is a one-to-many relationship between things ... This should be visible in the URI patterns. ... So they become hackable and provide for content-negotion ... All the way back to real-world objects

<TomB> Jeff: URIs can be made hackable. I like using generic resources. As you hack back, go from representation to generic resource. Hack back on the slash, go back to... etc etc

emma: Is related to best practice for indentifiers.

<TomB> Michael: This can be visualized in one slide.

antoine: This belongs to [SW-Identifier]

TomB: Best practice or research?

antoine: Best practice, comparable to best practice document for eGovernment

Jeff: Sometimes wrong URI patterns limit your choices, eg, for mobile presentation ... We shouldn't have to write one-off systems. ... We shpould create a framework that generates those pattern automatically.

Alexander: Agreed. If we can agree on ID patterns, that would be helpful to others in the community

TomB: I am uneasy about this group saying "we think this is the answer"

edsu: Cool URIs for the semantic web defines the URI patterns just fine - no need to do it again.

Michael: But that is very low-level. Does not deal with relationship between organized knowledge and the world (in detail).

Alex: Do we also consider patterns for modeling data?

Emma: No, it is in application profiles.

Alexander: Patterns not the same as application profiles. ... Software engineering perspective: things that tell me on a basic level.

emma: Created the topic "patterns" and added it to requirements.

ACTION: Jeff to review the UK eGovernment document on identifiers. [recorded in]

<edsu> seems like the url for that spec from the UK about URL patterns has moved or been removed, it used to be at

<edsu> definitely ironic :-)

<edsu> ahh, here's the new url for it

antoine: Jeff to elaborate on the document

See Jeff's comments on the URI patterns and functionality described in the "Designing URI Sets for the UK Public Sector" document ->
