@timbray Respectfully disagree & I do care, e.g., in paper reviews: it should be “website” as in Wikipedia, but “the Web” & “the Internet”.

@rtroncy Yes, I stay at the conference hotel. $199/night is a fair deal for what you get. Use the code “MIT”. Checked 3rd-party offers, too.

@RubenVerborgh @mamund Yeah, this blog post (rant even) is one of @fielding’s more accessible pieces ;-) Me, too, I keep citing it.

via Echofon in reply to RubenVerborgh

@rtroncy That’s the plan. But it will be a different paper (attempt), & we don’t have the resources yet. Maybe along the lines of Prefix.cc.

via Echofon in reply to rtroncy

@rtroncy Easy to come up w/ a couple of RegExps for type guesses, but it can awfully go wrong… The prob. is: we don’t know what’s out there.

via Echofon

@rtroncy As I wrote, work in progress :-) We need a proper ontology landing page & term landing pages. Maybe crowdsource the type curation.

via Echofon in reply to rtroncy

@rtroncy Having proper types would require a proper ontology, which given the 2nd part of bit.ly/Qu6oHe is hard. Work in progress.

via Echofon in reply to rtroncy

@rtroncy The namespaces come from . Probably there’s a way to pre-map them, but, hey… For types: all string literals for now.
