I've mostly been lurking here since i left W3C (after 17 years) in
2018, where i had led a lot of the XML work.  

These days i mostly work for Paligo AB in Sweden, and do XSLT training
and XSLT/XML/XQuery consulting via Delightful Computing.

Why lurk? The state of epub and ebooks is very disappointing to me, and
although a lot of that is down to readers and devices, a lot also is
from missed opportunities, ranging from cross-book linking and domain-
specific searching through to typography & accessibility. A W3C Working
Group isn't usually a good place for leaps in forward design, since you
can't make a standard around experiments, but where else to watch &
sometimes gently prod people behind the scenes?
