Thank you for the warm welcome, I feel very honoured to have been made a
Tika committer.

A few lines about myself : I am the director of a DigitalPebble, a small
consultancy based in Bristol, UK. I started using Lucene back in 2001, made
a few small contributions to it and started LIMO - an open source web
application used for monitoring Lucene indices. Over the last 3 years I have
used and contributed to quite a few Apache projects such as SOLR, UIMA,
Nutch and Tika. I am also a Nutch committer since last Devember and am
actively working on NutchBase, which will (probably) become Nutch 2.0 at
some point.

I have used Tika quite a lot in the last couple of years, notably by writing
a Tika component for Apache UIMA and a parse plugin for Nutch. Most of the
parsing duties have already been delegated to Tika in the forthcoming Nutch
1.1 and this trend will continue in Nutch 2.0. I will probably spend some
time porting the missing parsers from Nutch to Tika (e.g. feeds) and dig a
bit more on any bugs that my Nutch crawls could reveal (e.g. errors in
mime-type magic detection).

My activities at DigitalPebble also cover Natural Language Processing (which
is my initial background), text analysis and I recently started an open
source project named Behemoth which allows to scale text analysis
applications using Hadoop.
