I'm Dave Cridland. I've been working in, on, around, and with Internet Messaging technologies of various sorts since 1993, a year worryingly close to the birth of some of the prominent members of our community. I'm "XMPP Team Lead" at [http://www.isode.com/ Isode Ltd], a company which does not only XMPP, but also LDAP, IMAP, SMTP, X.400 and X.500.

My name is on [http://www.arkko.com/tools/allstats/davecridland.html 5 RFCs] (and two drafts), and [http://www.xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0237.html one XEP], although I've been involved to greater or lesser degrees with rather more than that.

I've served on the XMPP Council now for two years. I'd like you to make that three.

The XMPP Council is meant to do two things. First, we're meant to be the technical leadership of the XSF, and secondly we get to have meetings - albeit remote ones, and therefore lacking in tea and biscuits - where we approve, and in some cases veto, various XEPs and changes to them.

I think we need a constant flow of new blood onto the Council, to avoid the collective lethargy I describe above, and bring new, fresh, insight into the problems the Council faces.

* I hang about in jdev from time to time, and discuss various things that come up. Similarly, I try to pull people in from identi.ca et al, probably with less success.

* I encourage people to turn up to Council meetings, post on the mailing list, and suchlike. The increased attendance has, in my opinion, been a real blessing.
