Irvine, Calif., Jan. 11, 2000 - eBuilt, Inc., a leading designer and
builder of industrial-strength e-businesses, has appointed Internet
expert Roy T. Fielding to the board of directors. Fielding is a
primary architect of the modern World Wide Web infrastructure. A
leader and developer in the open source software movement, Fielding

than 59 percent of all public Internet Web sites.
"We are very pleased to attract a board member of such distinction as
Roy Fielding," said Mike Dewey, eBuilt's CEO. "With Roy joining
eBuilt, we have rounded out an already impressive technical team.
Roy's contributions to the Internet standards body (IETF), and his
experience as co-founder and chairman of the Apache Software
Foundation will bring a wealth of knowledge to eBuilt."
Fielding is the architect of the current version of the Hypertext
Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1), co-author of the Internet standards for
HTTP and Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI), and a founder of several
open-source software projects, including the Apache HTTP Server

Inc., an Internet software company.
"eBuilt has the talent necessary to build Internet-scale e-business
applications that take full advantage of the modern Web
infrastructure," said Roy T. Fielding. "I hope to add my first-hand
knowledge of the design principles behind the Web infrastructure and
direct involvement in developing the next generation of application
architectures. In return, eBuilt's focus on real customer needs will
help inform my own design work, both within the IETF and the Apache
Software Foundation, leading to future Web improvements based on the
actual experience of successful e-businesses."
Fielding was recently honored as one of the "Top 100 Young Innovators
of 1999" by Technology Review, MIT's Magazine of Innovation. Fielding
