The Null Device

Theoretical concept of the day: The Pet Name Markup Language, a way of globally referring to people with the mediation of computers:
Human types: Did you get that letter from <pn>HoneyBunny</pn>
Machine sends: Did you get that letter from <key>cap://...</key>?
Machine receives: Did you get that letter from <key>cap://...</key>?
Human reads: Did you get that letter from <pn>Ms. Jones</pn>?
