Dear All, 

I'm Jonathan Jeon(It's just a English name. Korean Name is JongHong Jeon).

I work for SRC Center, ETRI(Electronics and Telecommuncations Research
Institute)[1]. I've been with ETRI for 10 years. 

I've worked as a professional web developer for 10 years and had it as a hobby for 15. 
I have been also spent a considerable amount of my time in domestic standardization. 
Currently, I'm also Chair of TTA[2] Mobile Web WG(WG6051), 
Chair of Widget AG of Mobile Web 2.0 forum[3]. 

I've also been active in a variety of other W3C groups and other international 
standardization bodies since 2003. 
Recently, I have been a member of Mobile Web Best Practice WG, 
contributing to MWBP 1.0 and mobileOK Basic Test. 

My areas of interest and experience are in Mobile 2.0, Ubiquitous Web,
and Web Application and Services of all of the above to 
the Future Web. 

During my rest time(in holiday), I try to go out for autocamping often, and 
try to make a good picture in the my SLR camera (Canon 1D Mark III). 

I believe the Web is changing the world. That is also my dream. 
I look forward to working with all of you in the DAP WG,

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.
