What I Care About

Sharing data via the Web is potentially the greatest advance in human history. Playing a small part in the Web of data revolution to make it to become part of our everyday life gives me great joy.

A big believer in the moto, "If not me, who? If not now, when?" and for-profit companies with a margin and a mission.

To recharge, I study Aikido, paddle (a kayak), look for dolphins and pelicans whenever possible.
