Michael Carter
Founder at Orbited Project & Official Contributor for W3C HTML5

Michael CarterMichael has always been driven to understand what makes scalable systems tick, particularly real-time, browser-facing systems. He is especially focused on standardizing a protocol for Comet (HTTP Push) to ensure that all developers can benefit from his research on Comet and real-time Web infrastructures.
Michael spends his time consulting, js.io, csp, and organizing Silicon Valley-based JavaScript interests groups (http://javascript.meetup.com/9/ & http://www.meetup.com/bayjax/ )

Beginning in 2006, Michael founded and led the development of Orbited, the Open Source Comet daemon, for two years. In his work with Orbited he has made significant advances not only in backporting future standards to today's browsers, but also in experimenting with various server architectures for real-time applications. Much of his involvement with the project has centered on creating scalable Comet technology and providing solid integration points with today's synchronous, request/response-based technologies.
Michael frequently speaks at conferences, participates in drafting standards, and interacts closely with Open Source communities. His recent speaking engagements include OSCON, Pycon, and AjaxExperience. Michael is also an active CometDaily blogger where he has written several articles on topics related to scaling Comet and Web frameworks.
