View from the Hotel in Shenzhen for W3C TPAC meeting. This is the suburbs ... rather worrisome how much growth there is!

Air quality wasn't that bad - this was taken through some rather dirty windows. ;-)

I stayed there and had breakfast there which was delicious. But never got the chance for dinner.

My little herb garden - protected from possums. Hoping the tomatoes will come in spring!

That's not a bad thing - it won't dry out much and herbs are undergrowth plants, they don't like a lot of sun.  Nice little garden.

"Godmother of HTML5 video" according to Bruce Lawson
Introduction

I am an open video enthusiast and want to make user experience with video online as interactive and enjoyable as Web page interaction. Think about searching for stuff in video and directly getting to the point, or linking out to related stuff while watching video. Also, I am keen to have such experiences for everyone, which is why I have a keen interest in accessibility.

I've got a long background in open source software, open media technology through Xiph and Annodex, and in open standards through IETF and W3C. I've worked with awesome people and my recent experience with HTML5 video has been pure steroids.

Professionally, I have a PhD in audio and video content analysis, have worked with research institutes, started my own company and contracted to great companies such as Mozilla and Google. I also have a 14 yo son and a wonderful partner, who both support me in my professional interests. Life is great!

The owners are wonderful - when we got stuck on 14th July on the beach without a means to get to the train station, because buses weren't going and taxis were fully booked, they took us to the main train station themselves. Marvellous people!
