To contact me, please send a message to j at joro dot dev.
I am very busy and only check this inbox a few times a week. Sorry if it takes a while for me to get back to you; it’s nothing personal.
I can also be found @firstname.lastname@example.org on Mastodon and @JoroDev on Twitter. Naturally, please remember that any content you find on these pages reflects my own opinions and practices and not those of my current or any former/future employers or alma mater.
I am not going to accept your request on LinkedIn if I don’t already know you. You’re not missing much, I don’t really use the site anyway.
I am usually delighted to speak at conferences if I have the time. However, please note:
For environmental reasons, I prefer not to fly if at all possible. I need to be able to travel to your conference from London in a low-impact way. Sorry, this means I’m likely to decline if you ask me to speak outside western Europe, where I’m based—I hope you understand.
There must be a Code of Conduct for all attendees, speakers, and conference staff. The Code of Conduct must demonstrate a commitment to an inclusive and harrassment-free conference environment for people of all genders, skin colours, sexual orientations, religious belief or lack thereof, etc. The example at confcodeofconduct.com is a good place to start. The Code of Conduct must be enforced.
COVID-19: I would like to see details of your accommodations for people who are still concerned about COVID-19. Remote options and spaces for people to sit with masks are good.
I refuse to present at any conference sponsored by or affiliated with ‘defence’/weapons manufacturing or fossil fuels extraction firms. This is non-negotiable.
Tips for contacting me
I am NOTJonathan T. Rothwell and have nothing to do with Gallup or the Brookings Institute. We have the same name, and are similar-looking white men, but we are not the same person.
I WILL NOT:
work for your start-up for free, even if you promise me a share in the company. I get paid for my current job, and I use this to pay rent and buy food. Don’t even try.
