Joining the W3C!

W3C logoI’m delighted to announce that from today, I’m officially joining the W3C!

After four wonderful years at Opera it was difficult to think what could follow it but being able to contribute to the open web as part of the W3C and still remain in Japan is as close to a dream-come-true as it gets.

Keio University Shonan-Fujisawa campusI’m based at Keio University’s Shonan-Fujisawa campus (SFC) which is a haven of trees and ducks just outside Tokyo. The new colleagues I’ve met or spoken with both in Japan and scattered around the world have been super welcoming so I feel at home already.

The work I’ll concentrate on will be a mixture of communicating with developers, businesses and media about the W3C’s mission and progress, together with more focussed work coordinating with device-related groups such as web and TV, automotive, signage, etc.

There’s not much more to say other than a big thanks for the kind wishes and support I’ve received to get here. I hope I can do my bit to reinforce the web as The Platform For All.
