I recently was voted on to the board for the XMPP Standards Foundation.
(XMPP—also known as Jabber—is a standardized protocol for realtime communication. We use it a lot at &yet and believe it to be quite useful.)
I’m extremely honored to become an official part of a community I have a significant amount of respect for.
As I said in my application, I’m a huge fan of the XMPP community. Many of the folks who are passionate and vocal in this unique community have inspired my beliefs about what the Internet should be.
