Dear all,

My name is Linda, and my background is originally in literary science. During my studies I was interested in digital humanities (then a very small field) and became an XML specialist early on. I worked in ICT since the late nineties and moved to the geo-ict sector about 8 years ago. I've been working at Geonovum for about 6 years now. Geonovum is the dutch national standards body for geospatial standards. At OGC I'm active in the CityGML working group and am co-chair of the GeoSemantics DWG.

At Geonovum we have been running a linked data community for several years now. I'm co-chair of this as well. It's a very active and diverse group of scientists, public sector and private sector workers (not only from the geospatial sector), some interested in but new to linked data, others already very knowledgeable.

This is my first involvement in a W3C working group and I'm excited to get involved!
