I am joining the SPARQL Working Group as a representative for British
Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

I am a Senior Software Engineer and I have been working for the past few
years on the BBC's Music website [1], where we followed the Linked Data
Principles to expose our data [2]. Prior to the BBC, I was at the University
of Southampton, in The IAM Group [3].

My main reason for joining the working group is to represent the interests
of the BBC and provide feedback on how decisions might affect BBC use cases.

In my spare time I have written various pieces of Open Source software,
including RedStore (a lightweight RDF triplestore written in C using the
Redland library) [4]. I have tried to use as much of Redland as possible,
rather than implementing features in RedStore, I have push it back upstream
into Redland.

I use my work email address (nicholas.humfrey@bbc.co.uk) for work related
activities and my personal email address (njh@aelius.com) for my own
projects. I am on the #swig freenode IRC channel with the nickname
