All,
 
I am a senior research fellow at JOANNEUM RESEARCH (http://www.joanneum.at/iis/), Austria.
My background is that of some 5 years of Web Application development, participating in some 
large EU projects and recently (2004) starting my PhD in the realm of media semantics w.r.t.
real world applications [0].

Currently I am active in two rather big EU projects; one is K-Space [1], a NOE focusing on
"bridging the semantic gap". The other project, NM2 [2] - where I'm the scientific lead - 
is a IP that tries to enable the creation of non-linear, interactive media production. 
 
Another project that I'm going to take care of is UAd [3], starting in early 2007. 
There we plan to utilise RDFa; this and the fact that I strongly believe that the
work in the SWD will make the Semantic Web finally take off is the motivation for
me to participate in this WG, focusing on the RDF-in-HTML issue: Ben asked, well here I am ;)
 
I'm also participating in the Multimedia Semantics Incubator Group [4], 
a XG where we try to find solutions for multimedia metadata interop through
the usage of SW technologies.
 
As a start, I added my profile in the new WG wiki [5].
 
Cheers,
       Michael
