Role: Principle representative for RPI

I am a current Ph.D. student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)  
under Jim Hendler. I'm focusing primarily on techniques and uses of  
SPARQL in distributed environments, and am thus keenly interested in  
the direction of SPARQL development. I am also the author of the  
RDF::Query[1] perl implementation of SPARQL. I wasn't directly  
involved in the previous DAWG work, but was following its progress  
toward the end as a way of keeping my SPARQL implementation aligned  
with the standard.

In general, email is the best way to contact me (greg@evilfunhouse.com  
-- I have an RPI address, but the institutional spam filters are a bit  
over-eager and unreliable). I also frequently am online on the #swig  
and #foaf IRC channels on freenode (nick: kasei).

I'm hoping being part of the WG will allow me both to contribute my  
thoughts and preferences as an implementor, and communicate the  
group's progress with the group here at RPI (and bring any feedback  
from the group here back to the WG). I'm particularly interested in  
seeing the formalization of many of the existing extensions to SPARQL  
(aggregates and updates), as well as the development of a service  
description mechanism.

best,
.greg
