Generally, the best way to contact me is by email. Write to
kodi at this domain. I have other, organization-specific email addresses, but my address here will always be valid. If your message requires a response, you can expect one within a day. If the matter is confidential, encrypt your message with my PGP key. I don't usually encrypt or sign my own messages, but I will upon request.
If you get ahold of my phone number, you're welcome to call me, but no text messages, please. SMS is a poor substitute for email and instant messaging.

Kodiologist, so I made a new one,
Kodimorph. It currently has no Google+ page. I've thus far succeeded at avoiding Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
