- XSF member since my first application in July 2007
- In 1996, I discovered both the internet, Linux, Free Software and IRC
- (I don't remember when) I discovered first ICQ, then Yahoo! Messenger (at that time Yahoo! Pager) and then... Jabber !
- Then I just watched Jabber grow
- XMPP was published as an IETF standard in 2004
- I got involved in the french Jabber community at JabberFR.org
- None. Sorry. I know only two languages: french and english. And well... a little bit of german. Ach gut.
- I sometimes report bugs and suggest features... that help other people code (better)
- Does wiki code count for code?
- I have contributed to: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jabber
- I have contributed to the JabberFR Wiki: http://wiki.jabberfr.org
- I blog about Jabber/XMPP and the related areas at: http://nyco.wordpress.com/ and http://nyconyco.jaiku.com/
- I write news and journals on: http://linuxfr.org

All my slides on SlideShare
- Talk about XMPP, everywhere
- Give talks, publish my slides
- Make people install a client and create an account
- Chat with them
- Invite them to chat rooms
- Transfer them files
- Invite them to chatrooms, so that they can fill their roster
- Talk about the many applications based on XMPP: presence, monitoring, alerts, PubSub, applications, bots, EAI, remote commands, collaborative editing, etc.
- Evanglize on open standards
- Hate the walled-gardens
Plans for the future
- Make people know
- Make people understand
- Make people switch
- Make people adopt
- Find the killer-app
- Understand, document and share
- Write for paper-magazines, so that XMPP can take off also outside the immaterial world
- Revive Jabber Journal? (aouch, I've written it...)
- Secret sauce projects ;-)
Why I like XMPP
- an open standard
- got an open and open-minded community, can't believe it, even specs are free(speech)!
- the federating IMP system
Why I'm re-applying
- Because it's cool to be a member
- Because it counts as a vote in XSF, a proof of confidence, in a world where lobbying is more and more important
- Because I'm an active evangelist and I want to do more (even if it's not easy to contribute time)
- Because you're taken more seriously when you give talks if you're an XSF member
- To stay in constant contact with XMPP technologies
- To follow their evolutions
- I don't know...
