My name is Kevin Smith and I'm applying to retain my JSF membership. The template for this re-app is extracted from Johannes Wagener's 2005 page so should hopefully cover all pertinent points; if it doesn't, please contact me over xmpp (kevdadrum@jabber.ex.ac.uk) and I'll ammend this page.

My email's required for my app, but I'd rather people contacted me over jabber. If you must use email, my domain is kismith.co.uk, and my user part kevin.

I'm in my mid-twenties, currently living in Exeter, UK. My day-time is spent finishing my PhD at the University of Exeter, which is a study into Simulated Annealing Techniques for Multi-Objective Optimisation and I'm hoping to submit shortly. My BSc degree is in Computer Science (1st class honours), from the same institution. I've been a JSF member since last year, having finally applied after lurking for some time.

* I'm the project leader for the [http://psi-im.org/ Psi] client (Justin Karneges handed over to me when he abdicated in late 2004). Despite being one of the long-standing clients, Psi's still doing well and in the near future will be seeing updates for lots of JEPs which strengthen Jabber's position as a leading IM solution, rather than just an alternative to the other networks, such as ad-hoc commands, PEP, Jingle etc. Psi was also the first Jabber client to have a branch utilising Google's libjingle, only a couple of hours after libjingle was announced, having been working with the Google Talk team on integration in the leading weeks.

Recently I've been having productive sessions with PSA mapping out some of the requirements for PEP, although I must place a disclaimer that despite adding me as co-author, he's done all the hard work this far.

I wish to continue doing what I've been doing so far; work with the Psi client, helping define extensions, and contributing to discussion of others' extensions and core protocol.
