  "description": "<p>PIDapalooza 2019 keynote address</p>\n\n<p>&quot;No PID is an island, entire of itself&quot;</p>\n\n<p>Identifiers are used and hence understood <em>differently </em>in different contexts</p>\n\n<p>A URI&#39;s meaning depends on its context of use and an implicit social contract among its minters, distributors, servers and users. &nbsp;Borrowing a term with origins in the ethnography of the workplace, we can say that URIs depend on a <strong>community of practice</strong>, the unwitting signatories to such a contract.</p>\n\n<p>Making a PID system work, technically, but more importantly <em>socially</em>, so that the virtuous<br>\ncircle of awareness, adoption and growth kicks in, requires that system to occupy a viable niche in the space of possibilities afforded by at least one <strong>URI ecosystem</strong>: a pattern of URI usage and the<br>\ncommunity of practice which sustains it.</p>",
