Send an Email
Email is my preferred method of contact, you can reach me at email@example.com. Where privacy is paramount, my public key is available, and I will respond with the same level of security (signatures only, or full encryption).
Chat on IRC
Otherwise, IRC would be the best way to get in touch with me. A simple /whois colstrom on any of the following networks should find me easily enough:
Use a Phone
If you’re a mobile person, and you don’t have a chat-enabled handset, you can reach me via SMS at 1-42-42-42-CODE (1-424-242-2633). You can also leave a voice message and it will be horribly mangled by machine translation, and the transcript sent to me. I do enjoy a good chuckle. Where long distance calling rates make this a burden, you can call me toll-free at 1-888-55-CHRIS (1-888-552-4747), but only if you are in Canada (or the United States).
Folks on a cutting-edge voice provider with iNum support can dial (883) 510001342205 from anywhere in the world, and connect to me. Otherwise, check for a usable local access number (the list is pretty comprehensive).
When all else fails, you can dial my SIP line directly at 11103966000 (*8570 for the network if you’re connecting through SIP Broker).
Chat without IRC
If you find conversing over an Instant Messaging system more convenient, feel free to contact me on any of the following (in order of preference):
- firstname.lastname@example.org on XMPP, Google Talk, or Windows Live Messenger
- ChrisOlstrom on AIM
- chris.olstrom on Yahoo
- 40671723 on ICQ
While Playing Games
I am an avid gamer, and if you cannot reach me by one of the above methods, you can likely find me one of the major console networks. My Xbox Live GamerTag is “AssemblerLine“, and my handle on PlayStation Network is “SiliconViper”.
