aloha, and welcome, keith!

by way of welcome and introduction, here's a bit of info about me:

i am one of the HTML WG reps on the joint task force; i also am a member 
of the Protocols & Formats (http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF) working group, the 
User Agent Accessibility Guidelines working group 
(http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA), and the XHTML2 working group;

away from w3c activities, where i am an invited expert, i serve as vice-
chair, webmaster and listmaster for the Open Accessibility (A11y) 
Workgroup at The Linux Foundation (although we started out under the 
Free Standards Group's umbrella - http://a11y.org) and serve as editor 
of the WG's draft specifications (http://a11y.org/specs)

i'm also a user of assistive technology, due to loss of both the 
ability to see and the sense of touch due to neurological damage 
that left me functionally illiterate, which, obviously, serves to 
further fuel my participation in standards setting and open source 
fora with an "eye" especially, but not exclusively, focused on 
usability (for either accessibility is a sub-set of usability, or a 
synonomous super-set); common sense (or, uncommon sense, depending 
upon whom you ask); and the consistent application of logic...

i eagerly anticipate working with you on the joint forms task force,
gregory.

PS: so long sebastian -- i hope we have an opportunity to collaborate
again in the near future (or at least have a good long chat)
