How Have You Contributed to XMPP?
I got involved with the Jabber community in November 1999 and have been contributing ever since. I [co-]authored many of the early XEPs (Data Forms, Disco, MUC, Pubsub, Jingle, etc.) as well as the core XMPP RFCs at the IETF. For many years I was also the Editor/Registrar and served as the Secretary; 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, and occasionally review pull requests against XEPs I've co-authored. I also run the Jabber.org messaging service.
What Are You Working On?
I work on the Firefox team at Mozilla, where I manage the technical aspects of our strategic partnerships.
Why Are You Reapplying?
I still care about XMPP and it's probably good for the XSF's Treasurer to be a member of the XSF.
