Dave Raggett

Member, XSB

Dave Raggett has been closely involved with the development of standards for the World Wide Web from a very early stage, including HTTP, HTML, ECMAScript, XHTML, MathML, XForms and VoiceXML. As a JustSystems-sponsored W3C Fellow, Dave has organized workshops on HTML, printing on the Web, math on the Web, voice, and multimodal interaction, as well as chartering working groups on a range of topics.

Dave's current focus is on realizing the potential for financial data as part of the Web. Filing annual and quarterly reports in XBRL is a good start, but we now need to focus on how to exploit this data and how to combine it with other kinds of information increasingly available on the Web. As our understanding of what this means and how to achieve it improves, we can expect to see a need for changes to standards, including XBRL.

In addition to helping to forge closer links between XBRL International and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Dave is taking a hands on approach to working with XBRL. He has developed tools for mapping XBRL filings into RDF for use with Semantic Web technologies, and for rendering XBRL as a web service. He aims to make it really easy for all kinds of websites to embed financial data. Dave is an experienced software architect and has a doctorate in Astrophysics from the University of Oxford.
