I am 36 old software engineer. I come from Poland and I live in Cambridge, UK. Apart from my professional job I used to participate to a few open source projects: [http://www.geotools.org GeoTools], [http://generguide.sourceforge.net/ GenerGuide], [http://wttools.sourceforge.net WTTools] and the last one, Jabber/XMPP related: [http://www.tigase.org Tigase]. Most of my professional work was around implementation of network servers and network protocols.

Apart from software development work I wrote also a few articles about working with Emacs, Java and XML: "[http://wttools.sourceforge.net/emacs-stuff/emacsandjdee.html  Emacs and JDEE]", "[http://wttools.sourceforge.net/emacs-stuff/emacsandxml.html  Tools and methods for XML]" and "[http://wttools.sourceforge.net/emacs-stuff/basicxml.html Editing XML files]".

Ages ago I found information about new IM protocol - Jabber. As that was (and still is?) the first fully open protocol and the idea about distributed IM network seemed very interesting I started to use it. After some time, using Jabber client was not enough for me. I decided I want to have my own server installed.

Modern world is in most cases about effective communication. People live in distant areas and they often work together so they have to communicate. Before IM there was phone and e-mail. And IM takes the best of them and offers this as a very effective way of communication. Jabber/XMPP as open technology brings it even on to next level. Thanks to Jabber/XMPP we are not dependent on a particular company.
