How Have You Contributed to XMPP?
I got involved with the Jabber community in November 1999 and have been contributing ever since. I wrote many of the early XEPs as well as the core XMPP RFCs at the IETF. From 2002 to 2017, I served as Executive Director of the XSF.
That's Nice, But What Have You Done for Me Lately?
Not much. Although I continue to serve as the XSF's Treasurer, my technical contributions to the XMPP community have dropped off. I still monitor XSF discussion lists and chatrooms in case I can be helpful (which these days mostly consists of providing historical context). I also run the Jabber.org messaging service.
What Are You Working On?
In late 2017 I joined the Firefox team at Mozilla, where I'm currently focused on web payment technologies, privacy and security, and improvements to our engineering processes.
Why Are You Reapplying?
Because it's probably good for the XSF's Treasurer to be a member.
