Assistants aren't listed as co-authors, AFAIK, in general. ;-)
Nor do they travel the globe participating in their own right in the
IETF, or providing keynotes at various technical conferences. ;-)
She is an ISI researcher, one who worked with Jon Postel for many years,
and worked and continues to work with Bob Braden and the 60+ other
people in USC/ISI's Computer Networks Division: http://www.isi.edu/div7
My own perception of Joyce's influence on the Internet is
compartmentalized; perhaps the number of different areas in which she
participated contributes to the confusion.
At least one partial view is that she:
- co-author (where author=content) of many RFCs with Jon
- is a key component of the "RFC-Editor" position,
which is more than one "person"
- was a key component of IANA before and partly after
its handover to ICANN, which was also more than one "person"
- helped define and lead the IETF User Services area
I hope that helps...
