Chris Messina

Head of Product, Stealth Startup

Chris is a designer, writer, avid Twitterer and speaker who’s known for inventing the hashtag. He works with developers, product designers, entrepreneurs and communities to bring to life projects that should exist but don’t. His superpower is pioneering initiatives before most people realize they’ll be important. For example: co-organizing the community that launched Firefox, creating Google developers, opening the first co-working spaces and starting BarCamp (the unconference). He’s currently chasing down a trend he calls “conversational commerce” in the bot/messaging space.
