Peter Saint-Andre: Technology

I'm privileged to be part of the amazing team at &yet, building better ways for people to work together. Since 1996 I've been deeply immersed in Internet technologies, with a focus on messaging (Jabber/XMPP), real-time collaboration, identity, security, internationalization, and related topics. In March 2012 I completed a two-year term on the IESG as co-director of the Applications Area at the IETF. In my spare time, I run jabber.org and xmpp.net, and even do a bit of programming now and then. Check out my Brutally Honest Résumé for all the gory details.
