Re: Welcome to the Web Platform Project!

Hi everyone,

I'm Tobie Langel, a jazz musician by trade turned Web developer by
accident and now heavily involved in the standardization process which I
lead at Facebook. I've always been very involved with the open source
community (I notably helped document then maintain the Prototype
JavaScript Library) and I'm extremely excited by this new project. You can
generally find around the Web under the handle of "tobie". Well, except on
Facebook, ironically, where someone was faster to get it than me.

Welcome aboard!
