Firstly, great stuff getting all of this organised, I can only imagine  
how much work it was tracking down peoples' constraints in order to  
satisfy them, go Harry &  Chairs !

So, I thought I would also write a short introduction about myself, am  
not sure if this common practise but here we go :

I am Mischa Tuffield, I am currently working for Garlik and have been  
for about 9 months now, pre-Garlik I was at the Uni of Southampton,  
where I am still registered as a (nominal) PhD student under Nigel  
Shadbolt's supervision. I have been doing RDF stuff since 2005 when I  
moved to soton and the AKT project, and hope to finish my thesis on  
personal information/privacy/lifelogging on the Semantic Web at some  
point soon, he says optimistically ....

At Garlik I have been working on FOAF stuff, links to most of which  
can be found here [1], as well as working on our main DataPatrol[2]
