I'm Joe Hildebrand, and I am re-applying for JSF Membership.

== Current Job ==
As the CTO of [ Jabber, Inc.], I'm responsible for (but not the only source of) the technology vision of our products, as well as communicating that vision to our customers, the press, analysts, and others. I'm lucky to work with such a wonderful team. I have a [ blog], but I don't post there as often as I'd like.

== Open Source ==
I'm the main author of [ Jabber-Net], a set of .Net libraries that provide XMPP supprort. I also help [[Peter Millard Application 2005 | PGM]] with the [ Exodus] client.

== Protocols ==
Some protocols I've contributed to this year:
* [ XEP-0080: User Geolocation]
* [ XEP-0081: Jabber MIME Type]
* [ XEP-0106: JID Escaping]
* [ XEP-0111: TINS]
* [ XEP-0115: Entity Capabilities]
* [ XEP-0131: Stanza Headers and Internet Metadata (SHIM)]
* [ XEP-0138: Stream Compression]
* [ XEP-0150: Use of Entity Tags in XMPP Extensions]
* [ XEP-0152: Reachability Addresses]

Note that the general workflow in our office for these is that I scribble some chicken-scratch on [[Peter Saint Andre Application 2005 | stpeter]]'s whiteboard, and he does all of the hard work. Have I mentioned I work with some greate people? :)

I was also the co-chair of the [ WebDAV] working group at the [ IETF] for a while this year.

== Public Speaking ==
There were more than a handful of speaking engagements this year. [ Usher] and Theresa take good care of me.

I'll try to come back and fill this section in with more detail.

== Why? ==
When I'm talking with large corporations, trying to get them involved in the JSF, I stress to them that we're an open bunch. Anyone can join the mailing lists, anyone can contribute. That makes us different from some standards organizations that make you purchase an expensive membership. However, we also have a pretty clear, [ republican] decision-making [ process], which makes us different from some other standards organizations. I believe the group of interested, intelligent participants we have drawn together, coupled with a little bit of structure, is what allows us to make as much forward progress as we have. I want to be a part of that structure, to help determine who our leaders are.
