Welcome Chris!

Pierre, I want to thank you for all the contribution, help, and support you've given us (and me) in the group. I look forward to continuing to work with you on HDR colour and media production topics.

Also, please note the change of chairs!

Pierre is stepping down as co-chair of the Interest Group. He should not
go far though: the IG has been discussing the need to improve support
for color on the web for some time now, and Pierre continues to chair
the Color on the Web Community Group where technical issues and
solutions are now being actively discussed (the group has recurring
meetings on Monday 21:00-22:30 UTC every two weeks, last one on April
26). If you haven't done so already, please consider joining the
Community Group and the discussions:;!!CQl3mcHX2A!XVfEryW-FBm6JQ1lJBy4ct_okFrz_rkQvTZmxeTxvU3JFp4Tpl-tvqZBUBdc8NjA05KAMt9u-w$<;!!CQl3mcHX2A!XVfEryW-FBm6JQ1lJBy4ct_okFrz_rkQvTZmxeTxvU3JFp4Tpl-tvqZBUBdc8NjA05KAMt9u-w$>

I am happy to report that Christopher Lorenzo (Comcast) has agreed to
step up as co-chair of the IG. Welcome, Chris!
