Thanks for kicking this off, Doug.

I'm Alex Komoroske, a Product Manager on Chrome's Open Web Platform team. I
used to be a web developer by trade, but now I'm on the other side of the
ecosystem helping to make the web platform as awesome as it can be. In the
run up to the site announcement  I've done a lot of the work on templates
and semantic media wiki stuff (see
http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Implementation_Patterns for a slightly
out-of-date overview). You can find me on the site and in IRC as "jkomoros".
