Hello everyone!

I'm Chris Mills, an open standards evangelist in Opera's developer relations team, and lead editor on dev.opera.com, our tutorial site. I'm really passionate about HTML, CSS, JavaScript and accessibility, and I am one of the content leads on webplatform.org, so please feel free to direct questions about content/IA/language style to me.

I'm on the Irc channel as chrismills, and will be spending as much of my waking time as possible doing moderation in UK/Europe time (I'm based in Manchester, UK).

I used to be a web developer by trade, but now I'm on the other side of the ecosystem helping to make the web platform as awesome as it can be. In the run up to the site announcement  I've done a lot of the work on templates and semantic media wiki stuff (see http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Implementation_Patterns for a slightly out-of-date overview). You can find me on the site and in IRC as "jkomoros".

I started out in SVG, which doesn't have a lot of really good documentation out there on the web.... I hope this site will change that.

I'm also really interested in the content architecture side, any possible standardization hooks, testing and compatibility, enabling translations... ok, well, pretty much every part of this project.... so I'm interested in those conversations too.
