I'm Chris Messina, friend to startups, inventor of the hashtag (original proposal), and formerly worked at Uber, Googler, and cofounded Molly. I've been a proud participant in the open source/open web communities. I co-founded the BarCamp and coworking communities. I'm a designer, thinker, writer, Twitterer, and product hunter.

To learn more about me, ask me anything on Molly.

If you’re interested in hearing more from me in the future sign up for my free (infrequent) newsletter.

I also accept unsolicited email, but can't promise a response to everyone given the volume of email I receive. I will do my best to get back to you though!
