My name is Nicolas Vérité (Verite in ASCII), or Nÿco, born in 1974 (yes, XXth century), so being 35 years old, with 10 years of work experience as a profesionnal in the IT/IS (DBA, sysadmin, free/opensource software expert/consultant/architect). Oh yes, I have no more long hair, and I now wear glasses (translation: I look serious now).

== What I do for XMPP ==
   
I am an active member of the french-speaking JabberFr.org community since many years. We offer chatrooms, a wiki, forums, notification bot and several services, as a showroom for XMPP technologies. We try to help and document as much as we can, mainly software like clients, servers, libraries, but also hosted/running services (because specifications don't have to be widely covered since we have one central origin: xmpp.org).

XMPP, ten years later, is everywhere: Google, Nokia, Oracle/Sun, Apple, Adobe, Cisco... even Microsoft! All these actors (and many many more I don't list here) have at least one product or service based on XMPP (or at least using it). So XMPP is everywhere, but... maybe not everywhere enough. The wide audience of internauts at large do not have that perception. Why? Because XMPP does not do the news, because XMPP does not touch them, because Google Talk, LiveJournal and Yandex are not enough, because there is still no Firefox of instant messaging.

People, real users, want features, maybe it's time to take that more into account, catalyze the XEP writing, ignite the software development. Because if the XSF does not encourage that, who will do it?

After thinking and discussing with Mickaël Rémond, CEO of ProcessOne, Board of Directors member and again candidate, we came to the conclusion that we offer different profiles to the board, him being CEO, and me being more community-oriented. Mickaël brings business knowledge, I will bring dynamics and relationship with the communities. For short, we are quite complemantary. Besides, we sometimes do not agree on a certain amount of subjects ;-)
