Hello all,

I subscribe to an email newsletter written by David Weinberger.  He 
is the author of a number of books including "Small Pieces Loosely 
Joined: A Unified Theory of the Web" and "The Cluetrain Manifesto: 
The End of Business as Usual".

Aside from some very interesting and enjoyable humour, I believe he 
has an insightful perspective of the web, the technology of the web, 
and the society of the web.

This month's issue has a very interesting article on unique identifiers:


In it I see references to unique identification projects of which 
I've never heard.

I've since written him to bring his attention to Published Subjects 
so that perhaps he might include reference to them in the book he is writing.

I thought I'd bring the article to WG3's attention in case any member 
would also find his article of interest.

And it's my chance to wish everyone a very enjoyable holiday, and a 
happy, healthy and successful new year!

. . . . . . . . . . . Ken
