Hello EOWG colleagues,

I’m delighted have just joined EOWG as an Invited Expert, and would like to share a bit about myself to my new colleagues!

Shawn and Sharron asked me to send an introductory email, as the newest addition to the group and joining my first meeting with you tomorrow.

I’m David Berman and I live in Ottawa, Canada ... born and raised here, but traveled to over 50 countries spreading the word on universal design. I wrote a book about this, called  “Do Good Design”.

I love your approach to governance, and those of you who’d like to know what I’ve done and can do... I welcome you to read the posting I send to the list when I was being considered... and/or read my bio at www.davidberman.com/about .

However, in summary, I’ve been living and breathing spreading the word and the techniques of WCAG for almost fifteen years ... and now I am so thrilled and full of gratitude to be invited to work with the W3C people I’ve been in awe of for so long.

I feel confident that my broad experience in governance and standards development, in addition to design, auditing, curriculum development, teaching, and evangelizing WCAG 1.0 and 2.0 equips me to be of value in helping get the committee's work done.

Looking forward to doing some good together!
