Moving Things

The machine hosting this site, mag.ik.nu, has been moved to another physical location. Some people may have experienced outages, but hopefully that is all resolved now.

Talking about moving, the backend for Mimír has undergone some changes as well. Furthermore, I've created an about page for Mimír with information about its inner workings. It features a cool graphic!

Jabber Musings

Jabber, Inc., one of the companies that support the Jabber Software Foundation and all things Jabber in general, of course has a Chief Architect in the person of hildjj. He keeps tracks of the Musings from the Jabber, Inc. Architecture Group, which I immediately added as a channel in Mimir.

He's also written JEP-0080: Geographic Location Information, a data format for encoding geograhic information and transport it over Jabber. I am thinking of using this for the Jabber World Map over pubsub. And if that wasn't enough, he produced an internet draft with the IETF on TINS, a Transport for Initiating and Negotiating Sessions using SDPng over XMPP.

Keep up the good work!

Jabber Down Under

Jeremy Lunn and Rob Norris have teamed up with a couple of other people to form Jabber Australia. The thing is covered by The Age, Slashdot and LinMagAU. Congrats, guys!

I have been thinking of doing a similar thing here in The Netherlands. If you are interested in getting this off the ground, let me know.

Update: Tony Collins is part of the Jabber Australia committee.

Getting older again

It's that time of year again. Today I have reached the age of 26.

Wow.

Let's hope this year will be full of Jabber and other cool stuff!
