Greetings all,

I, like Arnaud, work for IBM, though I work within the software division 
that focuses product and application lifecycle tools and processes 
(Rational).  I have been involved in an activity to improve the 
integration of our tools, along with partner, ISVs, open source and 
homegrown tools through an effort called Open Services for Lifecycle 
Collaboration (OSLC) [1].  My role within OSLC is as leading the technical 
"core" of specifications.  We have been leveraging the Linked Data 
architectural principles as a basis for our open specifications that 
define additional guidance and vocabularies.  In that work, we realized 
how these patterns and best practices (see W3C Member Submission [2]) 
would be more applicable beyond our tools spaces and other IBM groups have 
been seeing this benefit as well.

I previously worked within IBM standard's team and with various standards 
development organizations, including W3C, HL7 and IHE.  I was an editor 
within the Compound Document Formats WG [3] (now defunct).

I'm currently a number of the JSON-LD W3C Community Group (as of very 
recently) and tracking activities of various LD-related work within W3C 
and beyond.
