Basic Information

XMPP Contributions

I got involved with the Jabber community in November 1999 and have been contributing ever since. I authored many of the early XEPs as well as the core XMPP RFCs at the IETF. For many years I served as XEP Editor, XSF Secretary, and XSF Executive Director. I still serve as XSF Treasurer and for 2023-2024 I also serve on the Board of Directors.

What Are You Working On?

In February 2022, I retired from the Internet industry (my last tech job was Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships at Mozilla). Although I advise a few startup CEOs and I'm slightly involved with a few IETF matters (mostly related to URNs and internationalization), most of my time is spent reading and writing about non-technical topics such as philosophy, poetry, and music.

Why Are You Reapplying?

I still care about XMPP and it's probably good for the XSF's Treasurer to be a member of the XSF.
