"Creator, identifier, date, content, and potentially other data" may sound familiar to many:

$ ls -l blog/1472.entry
-rw-rw-r--    1 kilroy   kilroy       2114 Jun 21 20:35 1472.entry

Here we have an owner or creator, 'kilroy', date 'Jun 21 20:35', partial URI 'blog/1472.entry', and content. If you're like Apple, BeOS, others, and creative users of filesystems, much more metadata is available. If you have a CMS or weblog tool, the storage is similar in concept.

Multiple, related content is handled much the same:

$ ls -l blog/1486.entry/
total 24
-rw-rw-r--    1 kilroy   kilroy       1728 Jun 22 09:06 1486.entry
-rw-rw-r--    1 kilroy   kilroy      16998 Jun 16 13:08 kitty.jpg
-rw-rw-r--    1 kilroy   kilroy        112 Jun 22 09:06 1486.meta

What makes a WellFormedEntry, in isolation, unique from any other resource on the web? If you were writing an uber-weblog tool that could take any information item in your possession or available on the web[[WWW]1,[WWW]2], and arrange them in chronological order with your authentic voice, is it a "well formed log entry" that does that, or is it the unique collection and presentation of resources that form the essential characteristics of a online Journal or weblog?
