Rich Salz

Rich Salz has been involved with secur­ity and dis­trib­uted sys­tems for a couple of dec­ades. He has par­ti­cip­ated in the COM/Corba war, the HTTP spe­cific­a­tions, WSDM/WS-Management, the WS*/REST war, and oth­ers. Rather than sit on the side­lines, he is usu­ally involved, by either writ­ing specs or imple­ment­a­tion. He hopes to just watch the next one from the side­lines, but it’s doubt­ful that will happen.

He joined IBM with the acquis­i­tion of Data­Power in 2005, where he is the tech­nical lead for the XML appli­ance products. He has about 10 times the num­ber of Google hits as Sam Palmisano.
