I just wanted to say "Hi" and add that it's nice to be back in the SVG WG 
after a multi-year break!

I know many of you already and hope to get to know the rest of you soon. 
For those that do not know me I was one of the two IBM reps to the 
original SVG WG  and I was very "hands on" coding up tests, samples and 
one of the very first SVG viewing applications.

Along with Rich Schwerdtfeger, I have rejoined the SVG WG so that we can 
discuss some thoughts we have about what it would take to make SVG more 
accessible to screen readers and the like.

Despite being away from the WG for a long time, SVG remains in my blood 
and I have continued to follow its evolution and create samples and demos.
