Hi, I'm Lin. I'm one of the folks that Jeni talked about who said they would
take part in the discussions but hadn't sent an intro, apologies for the
delay in introducing myself.

I'm an active developer in the Drupal community and a student at DERI
Galway. I contributed to the RDF in Drupal core initiative, am the developer
of SPARQL Views and Microdata modules, and co-maintainer of RDF Extensions
and SPARQL modules.

In addition to my development work, I spend a lot of time trying to explain
these technologies to the larger Drupal community in the issue queues and
also on my blog and YouTube channel [1][2]. I also organize bi-weekly Linked
Data in Drupal planning sprints to try to get other Drupalers more actively
involved in working on these technologies.

My interest is in making sure these technologies get used to their greatest
effect. For me, this means enabling a large community of developers and
(many more) non-developers to use them in everyday applications. I think
that the products that support this goal are:

   - #1 A set of use cases
   - #2 Documentation to help publishers choose which syntax
   - #4 A mapping from microdata to RDF
   - #6 A set of guidelines for vocabulary developers

Look forward to working on these things,
Lin
