Pat Hayes


See how carefully he fixes the meaning of  of his URI.

Pat is active in the Semantic Web Best Practices and Deployment WG and some of his posts can be read here, and here.

I met him through his work on the RDF Semantics document.  You can google for our interactions here.

Just because someone fixes in time the properties of an electronic identity & asserts that it corresponds to someone real does not certify the identity! And, indeed there may be no real way to do that. Fingerprints & DNA are pretty good at that, but doesn't bind the person whose finderprints & DNA to any particular personal history. To me it seems as if the identity thing is mostly made up of a preponderance of all this stuff: papers, DNA, fingerprints, witnesses, ss# etc. all associated to the single entity. Seems to be contrary to the paranoia about secrecy. (;-))

The following article brings up the point that our internal identity, that subjective confluence of our continuing identity (i am still that which i was yesterday) is, infact a brain pcess.

The concept of identity theft assumes an entirely new meaning for people with brain injuries that rob them of their sense of self?the unspoken certainty that one exists as a person in a flesh?bounded body with a unique set of life experiences and relationships. Consider the man who, after sustaining serious brain damage, insisted that his parents, siblings, and friends had been replaced by look-alikes whom he had never met. Everyone close to him had become a familiar-looking stranger. Another brain-injured patient asserted that his physicians, nurses, and physical therapists were actually his sons, daughters-in-law, and coworkers. He identified himself as an ice skater whom he had seen on a television program.
... so it will be processess in cyber space which establish identity, we cannot rely on ascii strings.  As far as i am concerned, one unique ascii strings is just about as good as any other.  That RDF chose to annoint the URI as the special carrier of identity is, me thinks, a diversion.
