David Young

David Young's first experience in documenting the open source world was the official 2003 manual for JAJC, a popular jabber client, which he authored in XML using Docbook.

He followed this with the development of "Bandersnatch", the whimsically named Jabber message logger, which remains the de facto open source platform for recording and archiving messages on a Jabber server.

After founding and successfully running an open source consulting company ("Funky Penguin") for several years, David "retired" to full-time employment.

David now works for a respected New Zealand IT consulting firm (Prophecy Networks Ltd) and pursues the odd "Funky Penguin" project in his spare time.
