My name is Ralph Meijer (ralphm) and I'm applying for the continuance of my JSF membership.

I've been an active member of the Jabber community since late 2000. I have co-authored a number of XEPs, all around publish-subscribe technologies, and contributed to many others, as well as the XMPP specification submitted to the IETF. Futhermore I have served on the XMPP Council since 2004.

I currently work for [http://jaiku.com Jaiku], on open standards and XMPP, and keep a [http://ralphm.net/blog/ personal weblog].

== Services ==

I maintain the following Jabber related services:

* [http://planet.jabber.org Planet Jabber] - *The* aggregate blog of Jabber related blogs.
* [http://mimir.ik.nu/ Mimír] - A Jabber enabled news service / web-based news reader.

== Code ==

My most visible contributions in terms of code are:

* [http://idavoll.jabberstudio.org Idavoll] - A (framework for building a) server-side component that implements a JEP-0060 compliant publish-subscribe service.
* The XMPP support in the [http://twistedmatrix.com/ Twisted Framework], of which I am the current maintainer.

== Evangelism ==

I am a strong promoter of Jabber related technologies and have been given presentations at the European conferences [http://www.fosdem.org FOSDEM], [http://www.xtech-conference.org/ XTech], [http://conferences.oreillynet.com/euos2006/ EuroOSCON], and [http://www.nluug.nl/ NLUUG]. Also, I've organised a Jabber developers' room and Jabber booth at FOSDEM on several occasions, as well as a booth on EuroOSCON.

== Why? ==

I would like retain my membership to continue my work within the XSF for the European continent. I will also re-apply for the next term of the XMPP Council.
