Whanana sent us an article about information objects as visualized by Robert Kahn. The article is written from a fairly childish place (it explains DNS for crying out loud, and the bulk of it is a history lesson obviously designed for a mainstream paper) but Kahn's Digital Object Identifier concept is interesting. If anyone has links to RFCs and the like, please post them in the comments.
