Greetings. I am jbash, aka John Robert Bashinski, aka "firstname.lastname@example.org". Everybody calls me just "jbash" (one word, pronounced "jaybash").
The page you're reading is http://jbash.com/. It's meant to identify me to you, and to help you to be sure you're really dealing with me.
Others among the 8 billion people on this planet use the name "jbash" or very similar names. They are not me and I don't know them.
This page used to live at http://jbash.velvet.com. I no longer own, operate, or otherwise control the velvet.com domain, and none of the Web-based services there are "mine".
Be suspicious of any unusual or sensitive mail from me that isn't PGP-signed. I do occasionally send unsigned messages from my phone. I also sometimes leave messages unsigned if I think some broken filter may drop them because of the signatures.
My email address is "email@example.com". All other addresses are obsolete or inferior; please use only "firstname.lastname@example.org".
My main PGP key's identifier is 07D744A7EFA8F420340517BE8F93F16937EA58BD (see also "Cryptographic data").
Be suspicious of any unusual or sensitive IM that claims to come from me and doesn't use cryptographic authentication.
Tox: Preferred nickname: jbash. Tox ID: A5F3BF183B2724FDEB88468AC11A40C777BDBBC28C4ACDA09469823DE5FB58331412A35DB8A8 Listed as email@example.com.
Federated XMPP (when it happens to be working, which it isn't as of July 2021): firstname.lastname@example.org. OTR fingerprint: 6383F91B 1D7A78BB 5CE717F5 BC91C3B1 B6155F7A
jbash.com and jbash.org: Both are entirely mine. "jbash.com" was run by others up until mid-2012.
beautifulscience.ca, bluelfdesigns.ca, hippienerd.me, kgbaird.net, synergisticimages.ca, warrenbaird.ca: These belong to family members and associates. I handle some or all of the hosting for them, but they own the domains.
kdjf.net: I use this to name infrastructure shared by other domains I operate.
From 1990 to mid-2021, I shared velvet.com with my ex-wife. We have sold the velvet.com domain and are no longer associated with the services there.
The new owners of velvet.com have been courteous enough to forward "email@example.com" and "firstname.lastname@example.org" to our new addresses. There is no guarantee that either of these forwards will keep working, and we don't control the entire delivery path for them. Please use our new addresses and update your contact lists.
A few friends, close associates, and family members of both of us used to have accounts on velvet.com, although none of them used it as their primary presence on the Net.
I used to run inflectam.org, but let it lapse in 2017 or 2018.
I don't use these accounts much and rarely check most of them. I prefer to be contacted through my own jbash.com services
Gmail/Google/related: I try to use "email@example.com" as my primary identifier. I also have the address "firstname.lastname@example.org"
LinkedIn: John ("jbash") Bashinski, http://www.linkedin.com/in/jbash. LinkedIn is for business only. I form LinkedIn contacts only with people of whose professional work I've seen enough to have an impression. Please do not send me messages via LinkedIn; I much prefer email.
Twitter: TheOneTrueJbash. I am not called "jbash" on Twitter. I do not use Twitter on any regular basis.
Facebook: John Robert Bashinski. I am not "jbash" on Facebook. I do not maintain a Facebook "friends" list. I do not log into Facebook on any regular basis, nor do I allow Facebook to notify me of anything. I keep the account only because I feel I should lay some claim to my name on Facebook. I therefore do not accept or respond to "friend" requests on Facebook.

Wallets previously listed on this page may have been retired. If you want to send me cryptocurrency, contact me for a current address.
As of 2021-07-10, I have no affiliations. When I do have affiliations, nothing I say or do should be treated as being in my official capacity at any of my affiliated organizations, unless either it's sent from that organization's domain, or it explicitly states that I'm acting in my official capacity. I won't do the latter without doing the former unless I have an obvious good reason.
If you want to communicate with me in my official capacity at an affiliated organization, please use the contact information associated with that organization.
I worked for Cisco from 1989 through 2018, with a hiatus from 2000 to 2002. My Cisco email address was "email@example.com". I no longer control that address.
I was a Director of the Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association until 2012. I no longer have any affiliation with the CPAA, but I believe I still receive email sent to "firstname.lastname@example.org". I have sent mail from that address in the past, but don't do so any more.

The directory at https://jbash.com/indexsigs contains detached OpenPGP signatures for the file containing the HTML text of this Web page. There are signatures made with several of my past and present keys.
This file itself is at https://jbash.com/ . The server should sign its traffic, including this file, with a key certified by a Let's Encrypt certificate, and cross-verified with a TLSA record.
I use or have used the following PGP keys:

All of my PGP keys are on the public keyservers.
All of my personal domains are signed with DNSSEC, and most of the domains I host for other people are also signed.
I now use Let's Encrypt certificates for most services visible to the public, backing them up with DNSSEC-signed TLSA records. Some certificates internal to the "kdjf.net" domain are signed with a private CA, but you probably will not encounter such certificates.
