Hi all,

Iím Ruben, a PhD student at Multimedia Lab, Ghent University / IBBT, Belgium.

Hypermedia APIs fascinate me and I enjoy talking to the Semantic Web community
about the many parallels there actually are with Linked Data.
I believe there could (and should) be a better integration between the two worlds
than we currently have, which is why Iím participating in this working group.

My current work focuses on capturing the functionality of hypermedia APIs,
so that autonomous software agents can understand why and how to use them [1].

I look forward to discussing with all of you!

Best regards,

I primarily worked on HTML4, DOM, and XML, as editor, activity lead, and co-chair, but I also had something to do with the W3C Patent Policy (fun times! ;-) as IBM AC rep. More recently I was involved in the task force that led to the launch of the W3C Community Groups.
