I'm the deputy director of the Knowledge Media Institute at the Open University and the President of a semantics networking institute called STI International. 

I've spent the last decade doing research in the overlap between semantics and services mainly leading 3 large EU projects (DIP, SUPER and SOA4All).

The most relevant current work my team is involved is a set of vocabularies (Minimal Service Model, WSMO-Lite, MicroWSMO) and tools for describing WSDL and REST services as linked data, storing these in a dedicated repository [1] and supporting invocation. We are currently collaborating with SAP to map their Unified Service Model (USDL) to a Linked Data format [2].

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.
