hello, everyone...

I'm Jeff Sonstein
and I teach in the Information Technology Department
at the Rochester Institution of Technology
in the US

my background is also varied
with academic training in the Humanities & Social Sciences
experience playing with computers dating back to the early 70s
and a current R&D focus on handheld/mobile devices...
I founded & currently run the virtual
"Center for the Handheld Web"
at http://chw.rit.edu/blog/

I am a member of W3C's Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group

I teach about all things Webbish at RIT
as well as about XML and related software technologies
but my passion is a holdover from my undergraduate days:
the interpenetrating webs of social affiliation
which can be expressed today within
social networking sites & technologies

I like the way Harry put it and also
"strongly believe that the user should own their own data"

I am very much looking forward to the work of this group
in helping define ways people & systems can work together
to better knit the social web
