My name is Ralph Meijer ([xmpp:ralphm@ik.nu ralphm]) and I'm applying for the continuance of my XSF membership.

I've been an active member of the Jabber community since late 2000. I have co-authored a number of XEPs, all around publish-subscribe technologies, and contributed to many others, as well as the XMPP specifications submitted to the IETF. Futhermore I have served on the XMPP Council from 2004 through 2013 and serve on the XSF Board since 2013, as Chair since 2016.

I currently work for [http://www.veon.com/ VEON] as Head of Real-time Communications Engineering. I irregularly keep a [http://ralphm.net/blog/ personal weblog] and more often write at [https://twitter.com/ralphm Twitter].

== Services ==
I maintain the following Jabber related services:

* [http://planet.jabber.org/ Planet Jabber] - *The* aggregate blog of Jabber related blogs.
* [http://mimir.ik.nu/ Mimí­r] - A Jabber enabled news service / web-based news reader.

== Code ==
My most visible contributions in terms of code are:
* [http://idavoll.ik.nu/ Idavoll] - A (framework for building a) server-side component that implements a XEP-0060 compliant publish-subscribe service.
* The XMPP support in the [http://twistedmatrix.com/ Twisted Framework], of which I am the current maintainer.
* [http://wokkel.ik.nu/ Wokkel] - A library on top of Twisted that provides XMPP extension protocol implementations.
* [http://trac.mediamatic.nl/anyxmpp anyXMPP] - A code-as-a-node XMPP Publish-Subscribe interface to [http://www.mediamatic.nl/anymeta anyMeta]
* [https://github.com/ralphm/ikdisplay ikDisplay] - An aggregator of real-time event notifications for waterfall type displays (including the Twitter Streaming API) that pushes to XMPP Publish-Subscribe nodes.

== Evangelism ==
I am a strong promoter of Jabber related technologies and have been given presentations at various conferences, mostly in Europe. Also, I've organized an Jabber/XMPP developers' room and XSF booth at [http://www.fosdem.org/ FOSDEM] on several occasions, among others.

== Why? ==
I would like retain my membership to continue my work within the XSF.
