My name is Edwin Mons (intosi, xsf?edwinm.ik.nu), I work for Isode Ltd, and I'm applying to retain my XSF membership.

Current Job

I work on the M-Link XMPP server team, and occasionally dabble with Swiften code.


I got interested in Jabber via Ralph very early on, but only decided to enter the (then) JSF in 2004, after a few people asked me why I was manning a Jabber Software Foundation booth at FOSDEM while I was no JSF member at all.

Side Jabber/XMPP Projects

Previously, I worked on data synchronization tools, content notification systems and production automation tools that all included XMPP as core technology.

When the infrastructure team (iteam) was started two years ago, I quickly applied for that team. I'm currently handling DNS and mail-related issues. I tend to keep an eye on the well-being of xmpp:jabber.org as well.

Plans for the future

I'll probably be entertaining the people at FOSDEM next year at the XSF booth / Real Time Lounge, and I intend to work with a few authors on making some XEPs clearer. I hope to have home automation I can controll using XMPP one day.

Why I'm reapplying

For me, the XSF is the glue that binds together a community based on a protocol. This was true in the past, it's certainly true for me right now, and I hope it will be true for quite a while.
