Mark Nottingham has helped develop Web technologies like Atom and HTTP for more than ten years.

Starting as a system administrator and Webmaster in 1995 (back when that title still got comments at parties), he’s become a recognised expert on the HTTP protocol, as well as Web caching and HTTP “APIs”.

This led him to become Chair of the IETF HTTPbis Working Group, an effort to clean up HTTP/1.1 and possibly develop HTTP/2.0.

Along the way, he’s been involved in several other standards efforts, holding positions in the IETF and W3C and writing specifications like Atom and Web Linking, as well as a fair amount of code.
