I have a lengthy history with W3C. I began getting to know the organisation when I first started looking into the possible application of Semantic Web technologies for online safety. One thing lead to another and my W3C experience now covers:
- chair of the first incubator group (W3C Content Label Incubator Group);
- chair of the POWDER WG (that lead on from the incubator);
- member of the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group (June 2005 - 2009) for which I edited or was an acknowledged contributor to 6 published Notes or Recommendations;
- Team member responsible for further developing and running online training in mobile Web and SVG (2009 - 2010);
- co-organised and ran workshop on Augmented Reality on the Web (June 2010); lead to establishment of Points of Interest Working Group.
- Contractor brought in to update and run a revised version of the Mobile Web Best Practices Course (2011)
- Team member September 2011 - present working on eGovernment, particularly in EU-funded projects in this area.
So that's AC Rep, working group member, working group chair, Team member and contractor. Quite a comprehensive set of roles at this organisation.
