—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—– Hash: SHA256

Why?

As of the 7th of February 2016 in Poland the surveillance law becomes effective. Keeping in mind privacy of mine, my family’s, my friends’, and acquaintances’, and answering in advance the question (I’ve heard for real) “How to contact you when you’re not on Facebook?”, I herby publish a list of means anybody concerned about their privacy may contact me with the use of. And it’s true, I’m not on Facebook.

Email

Email is the main communication means used by me. Maybe it’s because nobody around seems to care to use anything else.

  • …@protonmail.ch
    • PGP: 94F3 D05E A1CB 7EB9 6BAC 4FBF 2442 E277 76E0 A578 (“Only incoming messages in inline OpenPGP format are currently supported.”)
    • It’s my private email address provided by guys from Switzerland I fully trust1). The contact form on this website sends a PGP encrypted mail to that address. You can use it if You don’t know how to contact me.
  • …@student.put.poznan.pl
    • PGP: F6DE 8FF8 003C 5CDE 7E58 324B A315 493A 5453 2E5B
    • I don’t trust this service at all so if You want any privacy use explicit encryption. Use only if emails concern university life.

IM

  • Tox (text/audio/video)
    • This is my messenger of choice. If You have none of below, ask for my Tox ID.
  • Riot (text/audio/video)
    • I see it as an alternative to group communicators. And it’s in early states of development.
  • XMPP(text) …@xmpp.dk
    • My provider allows only OTR, OMEMO or OpenPGP encrypted communication
  • Keybase.io (text)
    • Chat is available for all platforms
  • Silence (SMS/MMS)
    • It’s a fork of Signal which encrypts communication over SMS/MMS. As mobile phone network operators gather all metadata, telephony will be switched off in states of higher surveillance.

A note why Signal is not there

Firstly, to contact me You need my phone number, which I’m unwilling to give away. Secondly, Signal creators keep the whole graph who’s-with-who. Lastly, it’s inconvenient—it can be used only on a mobile phone, i.e. desktop app requires Chromium. Which is just insane.

“Hey! Wait…

…you don’t provide us with any ID.” No, I don’t. Above all, I don’t want bots to harvest my email and send me SPAM. Secondly, it’s not that You don’t trust me, but how could You trust me. You can meet me in person and ask for it, You can send me a message using the contact form (it’s encrypted with my PGP key). People I know personally know my IDs, my email address is attached to my PGP key—You don’t have to be a hacker to find it. So, invite me to Your key signing party, or something…
