    i do not like this term. a service provider provides a service to people that can not do it themselves. I love the "one plate, one cook, one fireplace" philosophy behind xmpp. the total and absolute federation. a world without service provider.

  2. MattJ

    I like that too, but not everybody can do everything themselves

  3. MattJ

    and we shouldn't exclude such people from XMPP

    Otherwise they end up with "easier" services exploiting their needs

    Any recommendations how to clarify this term?

  6. vanitasvitae

    Does the term service provider need clarification?

  7. MattJ

    I think so, ever since I listed myself there ages ago. It seems a bit ambiguous to me, exactly what a "service provider" is. But maybe that's the point :)

  8. MattJ

    I see listed there providers of XMPP services (e.g. XMPP domain hosting), which is the first thing I think of when I see "service provider" in the context of XMPP

  9. MattJ

    But also listed are folks doing consulting, which is a different thing

  10. emus

    Maybe XMPP Consulting & Service providers
