My fellow AC representatives,

As of the end of this month, I will be stepping down as Vodafone's W3C
Advisory Committee representative. After 10 years at Vodafone, and 7
years representing Vodafone in the W3C, I am moving on to a new

Replacing me as AC rep for Vodafone will be Guenter Klas. A long-time
colleague, Guenter is head of Internet Standards for Vodafone and is
already known to many of you. He comes to the role at a very exciting
time for the Web, especially regarding the emergence of the Web on
mobile platforms and devices. 


Guenter has many years of experience in the mobile telecoms industry and
witnessed the challenges of innovation in various functions. His team
has been involved in a variety of specification work in several
additional organisations besides W3C, overall in areas as diverse as
device and network APIs, device and software management, messaging,
mobile web, runtimes and browsers, NFC, payment, advertising, solutions
for vertical industries and others.  

I've been privileged to be a part of this community and to be a part of
such activities as the Mobile Web Initiative, the Mobile Web Best
Practices, the Social Web Incubator, the Geolocation working group,
WebApps, Device APIs, many many workshops, and of course the TAG, where
I have been immensely grateful to have been elected by you in 2009.
Thank you all for your great support over the years. Although I won't be
playing such a direct role in w3c activities in my new position, I am
sure you will continue to see me around.

Regarding my participation in the TAG, I would like say a special thank
you to Tim, Noah and all the members of the TAG. It's been an immense
honor to be able to serve in this body. It is clear to me that the TAG
plays a vital role in the W3C and in the larger standards ecosystem. I
very much encourage you to put forward candidates for the current
election cycle (for which the nomination period closes at the end of the
month). I am more than happy to answer any questions on the TAG or you
can talk to Noah Mendelsohn.

I ask you all to welcome Guenter into the AC and I know you show him the
same warm reception you've shown me.

Daniel Appelquist
