If you feel you might have shared interests with Ciro Santilli, Ciro is very glad to hear from you, even if you don't have something a specific goal in mind for the contact.
To contact Ciro publicly about any general subject that is not covered in a more specific GitHub repository, including saying hi or suggestions about his website either:
- create a GitHub issue at: https://github.com/cirosantilli/cirosantilli.github.io/issues/new
- at mention Ciro's main Twitter account
Publicly viewable contact is preferred if possible to more effectively share Ciro's wisdom with the world.
But if you need private contact, no problem, either:
- extract Ciro's email from on of his GitHub repositories. It might be of the form lower case first name, followed by a dot (which Google actually ignores), followed by his lower case last name, and under a popular email domain from Google
- use LinkedIn or any other public profile linked to from: accounts controlled by Ciro Santilli
If you are a privacy freak or are going to tell Ciro state secrets Ciro has:
- this GNU Privacy Guard public key: pubkey.gpg
- a ProtonMail account which is of form: "Ciro's GitHub username + protonmail.com". Ciro aims to maintain very high operations security standards on that account:
- multi-factor authentication
- unique password not-reused anywhere else, and not saved on any computer or disk (and therefore entered manually on every new session)
- immediate message deletion after reading
- only opened from trusted devices and when in a private location
- only accessed through Tor Browser
- concession: notifications that messages were received in the ProtonMail mailbox are sent an unencrypted mailbox which Ciro views more regularly and which has more free storage. But the message content itself is not. It does not seem that the Android app has a mode where it only notifies you of new messages but requires a password every time to see any messages. Also Android appears to request to remember passwords every time, so you risk clicking yes at some point.
