Biography

Chris Pirillo has been working in the content publishing industry since 1996. He launched his first company, LockerGnome, to provide practical technology knowledge to millions shortly after attaining a degree in English Education. Not long thereafter, he became an expert in growing online communities – a skill that has served him well as the Internet has evolved. He’s hosted television programs, conferences, and radio shows – frequently called upon by media outlets to help translate “geek” into something everybody can understand. And now he vlogs every day of his life so that others might be entertained by the boring things he does.
