Hi All,

Thanks for starting this...

2 cents about me:

I volunteered to participate in DAP as a co-editor based on my experience from BONDI.
Together with Daniel Coloma we are co-chairing the BONDI Interfaces working group.
I contributed the online specification verification tool to BONDI Interfaces at:
that checks the BONDI specs automatically and can find some bugs.

>From my general self-reflecting point of view, it seems I am hunting for patterns wherever it is possible.

I am with ACCESS for more than 8 years now and was involved in the standardization of MMS in OMA/3GPP and SMIL3.0 in W3C.
I try to review and comment the recent W3C specs as much as possible.
Apart from that I have been developed lots of browser and messaging code that runs in embedded devices.

About my free time activities: I have wife and three lovely little sons ;)

Subject: Introductions


the working group now has sufficient members that we can safely assume
that most if not all of the core participants that will contribute to
it over its lifetime are present here. I would therefore like to ask
everyone on the list - especially W3C participants but also members of
the public - to introduce themselves. I'll start with myself.

I'm Robin Berjon, your co-chair in charge of the API side (though I'll
help with the policy side as well when needed). I am an independent
consultant representing Vodafone, but as chair will naturally remain
neutral. I'll note in passing that neutral does not mean devoid of
opinion, simply that my sole objective is the success of this group as
per its charter and according to the consensus of its membership.

Prior to this I've chaired the Web API WG, as well as the two binary
XML WGs. I've also been active in a variety of other W3C groups and at
times other standards-related organisations (at various degrees OMTP,
OMA, 3GPP, MPEG, TV Anytime), including editing specifications, mostly
around XML, Web, and mobile technology. I've also participated in a
fair number of Open Source projects, many of which around Perl.

In general I don't believe that there should be mobile-specific
specifications, and in the long run I'm not entirely convinced that
there should be such a thing as non-Web technology. I don't much care
how we do it so long as we end up with a kick-arse open web platform
for all and there's beer to be had along the way.

Before doing this I briefly studied philosophy in the cafés around the
Sorbonne, which I'm sorry to say sometimes shows. Outside standards I
am a husband and father of one (each), and have an "it's complicated"
relationship with a cat called Billie. Mostly I read, tinker with
movie stuff, and make some noises about politics.

I love it when a plan comes together so I very much look forward to
working with all of you to release some really wicked swell standards.
