Scott Wilson, Weblog, Nov 07, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Scott Wilson is right; there has been very little (much needed) attention to the depiction of statements on the web, such as "you have 124 friends", as claims, and not statements of (indisputable?) fact. This also applies to metadata in general, and it should be noted, that with some few exceptions, statements made by the authors of resources are also claims, and not statements of indisputable fact.
