Two New Ways To Interact with Dr. Brian Sovryn!

My CONTACT US page is lengthier than I imagine most people’s is. It’s the life of a tech journalist and developer, I suppose. I’ve lost track of all the ways that people can get in touch with me, really (including the recently added ZeroNet), but I do look at all of them periodically.
