It's a good cause!
For all my Linux friends, if you would like to contribute to a new laptop for the awesome, persevering, wise and inspiring Mr Peter Miller, please message me privately for details (email@example.com). Peter has been soldiering on with an old laptop that doesn't hold charge and is completely on its last legs. For an old (but spritely) coder who has basically been rather preoccupied with fighting bone cancer recently, it is a small thing we can do to give back for all the incredible contributions (code, wisdom and cheek) he has made to all of our lives :)
If you know Peter but have been living under a rock :) See http://blogs.operationaldynamics.com/pmiller/health/not-so-gentle/the-not-so-gentle-answer

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!
