Hi, my name is Henry Story.

I worked at Sun Microsystems on the Atom syntax specification (my name is in the contributors to the spec), and on the Atom Protocol. I wrote the AtomOwl ontology [1] in order to complete the work they had promised to do - since they had promised to deliver an ontology with their spec. I followed the Atom Protocol work, but was looking forward to something more semantic, and so I am very happy to join the Linked Data Profile group which seems to be doing exactly that.

Trying to build a distributed social network I came across the need for a global authentication system and developed the WebID protocol which is nicely specified now on the W3C at http://webid.info/spec ( a short introductory video is available on my home page ). People in this group should find WebID complements the work done here very well.

In the last year I have been working with Alexandre Bertails on the Read-Write-Web scala based project [2],
which is an implementation of a Linked Data Profile before LDP (it uses SIOC for example). I added WebID and ACLs to the work done by Alexandre.

Currently I am rewriting that project in Play 2.0 [3] using Banana RDF and akka.io in Scala. Hopefully we should have something that implements what we get to agree on here soon, that will be a lot more efficient still, with WebID and ACLS, and for which we can build some really fun demonstrations.

  I am doing this currently in my spare time, sponsored by French Social Security, as an Apache contributor.
