I'm a prof in the Dept of Information Sciences & Technologies
at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in upstate New York
I am a member of the W3C Mobile Web Best Practices WG 
and I am RIT's rep to the W3C

I came to RIT to begin teaching in the Spring Term of 2000
with a focus on XML-related technologies and the Web in general
and I have since added a particular emphasis on mobile technologies

you can find my personal website at:


my main RIT website at:


and a blog covering some of the work my students & I have done at:

we want to teach people to use RDFa to bridge the gap
between the machine-understandable Web and the human-understandable Web

- finding a way to merge RDFa into the next version of HTML/XHTML
- defining an RDFa API for scripting access w/in the browser
- developing teaching and workshop materials to popularize RDFa usage
