"Jabber.com Inc., a subsidiary of Webb Interactive Services, today announced the addition of two new Technical Advisory Board members -- Michael Tiemann, current CTO of Red Hat, and Dr. David P. Reed, former vice president of research and development and chief scientist for Lotus Development Corporation and one of the early members of the committee that defined the Internet protocol suite TCP/IP."

"The appointment of Tiemann and Reed marks the completion of an all-star technical advisory board chartered with assisting Jabber.com and the Jabber open source movement with technology decisions, product directions and planning. "Jabber represents a significant component of missing infrastructure for real-time routing of XML documents. With Red Hat keenly interested in growing the embedded and device space, we believe many of these devices will benefit from Jabber's ability to facilitate real-time messaging between devices and the Internet," said Tiemann."

"Both Tiemann and Reed are extremely well-respected technologists and come with decades of real-world experience and relationships that will accelerate Jabber.com's commercial product plans and initiatives. Tiemann and Reed will be joining Craig Burton, founding member of Novell, Rohit Khare, founding member of the World Wide Web standards committees and Stephen Williams, senior architect and creator of AOL's Buddylist server v1.x, used by over 8 million people and the precursor to AOL's highly successful Instant Messenger."
