This friend of mine is looking for a job, and since he’s got a fairly special skillset I thought it’d be worth highlighting him here. He’s a long-time veteran of security technology (starting in the British military) and more recently a really accomplished standards warrior. I got to watch John work in the context of the recent OOXML process, including the BRM in Geneva, where he was one of the most effective operators. He knows ISO process and politics comprehensively. Seems to me that at this point in history the combination of security and standards expertise ought to be real interesting to someone out there. If that might be you, contact me by email and I’ll put you in touch.

Ian Hicksons works for Google, and his job description has "spec" written in all three bullet points. I don't know if Google are looking for another hire like him though.
