Christopher "tofu" Zorn - Application 2009


I currently live in Charleston, SC USA and work for Stanziq. I have used the Jabber/XMPP protocol for work and play since 2000. My use of XMPP started with various projects for the Medical University of South Carolina, contracts, Chesspark and continues with Stanziq. These projects also allowed for contribution back to the XMPP community, ranging from small bug fixes, for different clients and servers, to some open source projects that I list below.

Why am I applying?

Currently, most technical projects I work on, use XMPP in some way. As we know, it solves a good deal of real time messaging and presence problems. I have used it in many ways, from the normal instant message solutions, to business applications and data transfer, to games like Chesspark. I try to contribute to open source applications I use in my projects and any time I get the chance to promote XMPP, I take it! I would also like to increase my contribution to the official XMPP community and being a member would facilitate that.
