what do URIs identify? 

Semantic World and Cyberspace: uri crisis - what do URIs identify?: "Still, we don't use the Semantic Web in broad and I think one problem is, that we don't find the right uris to identify ideas/people/things - concepts from the real world. The discussion about the URI crisis does not happen in conferences and articles, but everytime somebody proposes a new uri scheme to identify books, lifescience terms, etc. Then masses of people flame each other on mailinglists.

There are nifty approaches about to cure the identity crisis (like this here) but they all fail the problem because the problem is much deeper.

I usually then write one email saying 'uri crisis again' to point out that the problem is unsolved.

So, what is the Uri crisis about?"
