Apologies for not being on the call, but thank you for the welcome Tzviya!

My primary interests in this group--and the possible areas to which I can
contribute--relate to my other work in the Annotation and Social WG's and
to my work as Developer Advocate at Hypothes.is.

Specifically (from the Charter), those areas are:
 - General Architecture for Online/Offline Publications - Fragment
Identification

In the Annotation WG, we have use cases (generated by the original DPUB IG)
which relate to offline annotation and certainly the need for the
expression of reader-generated, narrow selection for the use of
highlighting, identifying, classifying, etc.

Additionally, the Social WG is interested in federation and the movement of
content on and off the public Web such that content can be created
irrespective of one's mobile connection or direct connectivity to any
single source on the Web--decentralized social networking essentially.

Hypothes.is interest is in combining these things to allow for "anything"
to be annotated "anywhere." We currently provide PDF annotation, and are
actively working with the epub.js project (and others) to explore
annotating EPUB documents in the browser.

Thanks for everything you've done in this group so far. I look forward to
contributing where I can.

Cheers!
Benjamin
