Questions? Comments? Just want to get in touch with me? There are a variety of ways you can do that!
I love to meet people in my office, Hopewell 189. Let me know if you'd like to visit!
My office phone number is +1 740 755 7856. If I'm not in the office, an email will probably reach me before a phone message.
A vCard contains address book or business card information in a standardized electronic format. My vCard contains my email, phone number, and the URL for this website. You can download and import it into your contact manager! To reveal the file, fill in my first name below:
GPG Public Key
My public key is in a local file gpg-key.txt and on the MIT public key server at 0x5f0b49c... Use this with Gnu Privacy Guard to encrypt a message to me or to verify my signature on something. For example, my signature of my vCard is
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.19 (Darwin) iQIcBAABAgAGBQJSAjzRAAoJEF8LSc+OXu0I+VIQAMb+Ea5ZJMqheMoxUJQYoBYo ggIW5Mb9QS0wYZhfHuFYzyJBDTaffXEHZZNyYREUDZt6twgtDw4ztrE0rDCwhGRv 15cN1F1gUWBk02a89gN1lUraYSwGVspNNMjsRlQxOwU9kQ3ujHMqawbW1r2okeAj z5CNx/auMi28c+8Tj6ZPEHUcUuuS69CFslNpw9cXQ8qtGLBw0gY5gGcj3rJhx9hf 0qSU4OmdhvQcZWRDn5yZz78Ln/JPI64/84h+cZoj8+x2mMAyY2sRws/2Xl+nKtgK aA3GpXtSQT4GVwO1i/Oe3Vgu3/NVMniBUKM+0BGom7ToR7a+IGCzuw0rn8w7aiue CNcXuH23To2R8z0MvpxWNqS84qYrQlvgoRmdc20ZcsUTODVcbmUnWqQn/bTOpJcR BD+QV/iETBc/DSo5sm/FYfdGyOrdGv0b6kHLhP8FftzlTqK+CbL1wLju8ZIcQ8vd VvA7zB2HuYb2Hx/EJZuoE2n5fdmfHxOIzDFk2kpTLiF6ra392YSSMB2qcyKGdRCX UmnykhwhaTwNdDqy+FZ+kldVl3V2FYu9OrZTgzz4JAYi65A8LFzewPHJ/YF5bGQM kZr7xGPtW9iNM2eUZ4mb+8irrf7fBpKS5BFgStNvoRcqjIoo95Gn+enC7m6dEhZp +egao1JD5xAiwrlaHUB0 =WMOZ -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
This signature can only be created with my secret key, and can only be validated with my public key and the correct version of my vCard. If you're sure that you have the right public key for me, then that key and this signature ensure the vCard hasn't been tampered with either. This is important because you didn't access this website through a secure connection, so you have no way of knowing if someone is tampering with my key during its journey from the server to your web browser (replacing it with their key, perhaps). In fact, it can be very hard to be sure that you have the right public key for someone. The best way is to get it in person, or at least get the key's fingerprint in person. If you want to know more, ask google for an introduction to gpg.
QR Code ¶
The encoded url is actually an intermediate url which redirects to a url of my choosing, so that I can update it as necessary. That's an idea I took from the P8TCH site.
Send me a secret message ¶
Once I needed someone to send me a password, and I didn't want it sent in plain text over email. So the person called me and told me the password over the phone. BUT—if we ever need to do that again, they can use the form below to e-mail me an RSA-encrypted code which I can then decode!
