To follow the introduction from my colleague, Ian Davis, here's me.

I'm a member of the Senior Management Team at Talis, a 37 year old
technology company based in Birmingham in the UK.

I joined Talis in September 2005, and prior to that held a number of roles
in the UK public sector, most recently as Director of an organisation called
the Common Information Environment (CIE), which included the likes of the
BBC, the British Library, JISC, and the National Health Service amongst its
members. Before the CIE I was at UKOLN, where I had some involvement in
metadata-related efforts such as Dublin Core, serving for a time on their
Advisory Committee, Executive Committee, and Board.

I'm not a crafter of code like Ian, but have played a role in the
development, evolution and dissemination of various standards and
specifications over the years, including the Dublin Core, the ISO Bath
Profile and more. I even wrote - with Eric Miller and Dan Brickley - an
early paper explaining RDF to the Dublin Core community [1]. More recently,
I've been more closely associated with Web 2.0 and associated concepts such
as Library 2.0. [2, 3].

You can contact me by email at paul.miller@talis.com, or IM (AIM/ MSN/
iChat) talis_paul@mac.com [but don't expect a rapid answer to email sent to
the .mac address]. On Skype I'm napm1971. I blog mainly on
blogs.talis.com/panlibus and blogs.talis.com/nodalities, but also on

I live in the East Riding of Yorkshire, about 200 miles north of London on
England's east coast, and make the trip to Birmingham about once a week.

The most immovable things in my calendar are a Senior Management Team
meeting on Wednesday mornings (UTC/GMT) each week, and taking children to
and from school and assorted after-school activities on a Friday.

I look forward to seeing what can be done around SWEO, and the ways in which
Talis can contribute.
