Thank you! The congratulations are a bit premature, I'm afraid, but I'm 
happy to be joining the group indeed.

For those of you whom I haven't met at TPAC, a few words of 
introduction: I work in London for the BBC. I also have a long history 
with the W3C… I was part of W3C staff for almost 8 years, active in the 
Systems team (I took care of the validators for a while, among other 
things), the Communications team and the QA activity where I was the IG 
co-chair for a while.

As AC Rep for the BBC, I have had several discussions in the past year 
about this WG (in which my BBC R&D colleague  Chris Lowis has been 
participating since the days of the Audio XG) and we were wondering how 
the BBC could help any further.

Both chair and staff contacts seemed to agree that bringing in someone 
with a good knowledge of the BBC mores and process - even without 
extensive expertise in the audio domain - could help the group work 
better and faster. So… here I am. Whether I am joining as regular 
participant or co-chair will depend on the opinion of the group and the 
decision of the W3C Director and management; regardless, I am looking 
forward to working with you and meeting you at our next teleconferences 
and f2f meetings.
