From the it-just-keeps-getting-wackier file, this;

The goal of XDI is to do for controlled data sharing what the Web did for open content sharing

Wow, where to start on this one?

So, how do “content” and “data” differ exactly? Can the same data not be returned from an HTTP GET on a URI as from an XDI GET on an XRI? And meanwhile, it’s doing the same thing that HTTP does two layers up from HTTP (presumably because of protocol independence reasons), yet is itself a system which is dependent upon the XDI protocol (which unapologetically copies the bulk of HTTP application semantics). Yet another case of those who don’t understand the Web, trying to reinvent it I suppose. Stop the insanity!
