All,

Michael [1] is a senior researcher at JOANNEUM RESEARCH, an applied
research company in Austria. He is working in the area of multimedia
semantics utilising Web of Data technologies in a couple of national and
international (EU) projects. 

Within W3C, Michael has been active in the Multimedia Semantics
Incubator Group (2006/2007) where he has been mainly responsible for the
'Multimedia Vocabularies on the Semantic Web' XGR [2] and he has also
been active in the Semantic Web Deployment Working Group and the RDFa
Task Force (since 2006) where he amongst others contributed to the RDFa
Use Cases [3], Test Cases [4] as well as the Implementation Report [5].
Michael proposed ramm.x [6] (RDFa-deployed Multimedia Metadata), with
contributions from Raphael and other former MMSEM-XG members. 

Regarding linked data [7], Michael has contributed to the community
project by publishing a dataset (Eurostat statistical data [8]), working
on discovery issues (voiD [9]), proposing "User Contributed
Interlinking" [10] and addressing issues with multimedia interlinking
[11]. Currently, Michael is finalising his PhD - having his viva voce on
26. Sep 2008 ;)

Michael also likes to hack, that is to actually try out stuff in
real-world environments rather than addressing only the theoretical
side. He recently toyed around with ubiquity [12], a Firefox plug-in
allowing to develop in-place interactions with any kind of Web content
(Web 2.0 and RDF-based alike).

Ah, and finally, as a tribute to the Web of Data, a final RDF triple
that says it all ;)
