Event Details

Come see guest speaker Chris Poole on April 29th, 6pm, at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway (Lobby Level) in the Riese Student Lounge.

Christopher “moot” Poole is the founder of 4chan, and previously the founder and CEO of Canvas Networks, the maker of DrawQuest. He is deeply passionate about online identity and expression, community building, and inspiring daily creativity.

Chris is most well-known for his work as the founder of 4chan, an image-based bulletin board he founded ten years ago at the age of 15. Chris oversaw 4chan’s growth from a niche site targeting anime fans into one of the largest and most influential online communities in existence. Today the site is visited by 22 million unique visitors per month, and serves over 500 million page views per month.

He was selected by the editors of Time Magazine as one of the 2009 TIME 100 and in 2011 was honored as one of Technology Review’s TR35. He was a featured speaker at the 2010 TED Conference and a keynote speaker at SXSW Interactive 2011. He has been profiled by TIME, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Technology Review, Vanity Fair, and others.

Chris also advises Lerer Ventures, a seed-stage venture capital firm in New York City, and is a proud member of the Free Art & Technology Lab. Born and raised in New York, Chris had previously been pursuing an undergraduate degree in anthropology before taking a leave of absence to found Canvas Networks.
