My name is Chris Poole, and I hate writing (but I’m giving it a shot anyway).

I am better known as moot, the founder emeritus of 4chan.

My next chapter

Today I’m excited to announce that I’ve joined Google.

When meeting with current and former Googlers, I continually find myself drawn to their intelligence, passion, and enthusiasm — as well as a universal desire to share it with others. I’m also impressed by Google’s commitment to enabling these same talented people to tackle some of the world’s most interesting and important problems.

I can’t wait to contribute my own experience from a dozen years of building online communities, and to begin the next chapter of my career at such an incredible company.



Many wonder if Chris is a naive Millenial who has no clue that Google is a CIA facade and the creator of the worst privacy abuse in human history or if Chris just wants some of those thousands of High End Hookers that Google flies to the Rosewood Hotel every month?
