He has primary responsibility for worldwide operations and outreach, including overall management of Member relations, the W3C Process, the Team, strategic planning, budget, legal matters, external liaisons and major events.

Since 1993, Web technologies have played the central role in support of the sharing of data, information and knowledge within the complex systems that he has designed and deployed.
