Hi! 馃憢

I鈥檓 Krist贸fer Reykjal铆n!

I’m a Software Engineer with a passion for digital security, privacy, and good software.

I hope you enjoy it!

Projects, work, fun, etc…

Code Wrangling for Automattic

I currently work as a Code Wrangler for Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com. If you’re curious about what we do and how we do it, feel free to reach out to me!

We’re always hiring.


A simple utility program I made to send myself digests of blogs I like to follow and read. Scans RSS and Atom feeds for new posts and sends you a link to every post it hasn鈥檛 sent you before.

You can find the source code here.

Where can you find me?

I’m always happy to respond to any thoughts or questions!

Personally I prefer to encrypt my communications, and I encourage you to learn how to do that too! The simple way is to use Keybase, but I’d also encourage you to learn how to encrypt your e-mails.

You can encrypt a message for me by using Keyoxide.org, and then send me that message using any type of messaging application/system, but you won’t be able to receive encrypted messages from me. For that you’ll need your own public key.

E-mail: kristofer@thorlaksson.com

Probably the best way to contact me. I check my e-mail regularly and usually respond quickly.

Mastodon: @reykjalin@fosstodon.org

Sourcehut: ~reykjalin

I’m keeping all my new projects in on Sourcehut, but still have some old projects hosted on GitHub.

GitHub: @reykjalin

Keybase: @reykjalin

By far the easiest way to reach me securely, although you will need a Keybase account.
