Edwin Mons Application 2011

Jump to navigation Jump to search

My name is Edwin Mons (intosi, xsf@edwinm.ik.nu), I work for IRX Innovations, an electronic paper display business, and I'm applying to retain my XSF membership.


I got interested in Jabber via Ralph very early on, but only decided to enter the (then) JSF in 2004, after a few people asked me why I was manning a Jabber Software Foundation booth at FOSDEM while I was no JSF member at all ;)

Jabber/XMPP Projects

In my job as server architect, I try to introduce Jabber/XMPP on every level it's technically feasible. Past projects include a data synchronization tool using pub/sub and content notifications via xmpp. Several of our new server applications use Jabber-RPC and pubsub. In private projects, I try to use as much jabber-related techniques as well. Nothing too exiting, just plain notification of changes and/or database mutations, test driving XMPP server and client implementations.

When the infrastructure team (iteam) was started two years ago, I quickly applied for that team. I'm currently handling DNS and mail-related issues.

Plans for the future

I'll probably be entertaining the people at FOSDEM next year at the XSF booth, if you're all willing to let me do it again.

More activities in the infrastructure team of the XSF.

Spreading the word about IPv6.

Coaxing people to write a Wikipedia page for someone.

Why I'm reapplying

I really like the XSF, and I feel it's important to have such a body for XMPP. I also want to be active in the iteam, and I'll need to be an XSF member for that.
