Chris Poole on joining Google

#Quote — Chris Poole On Joining Google

On one hand, we have the most valuable company in the world, whose formal corporate motto is “Don’t be evil.”

On the other hand, we have the founder of 4chan, “a site that epitomized the good, the bad and the ugly of humanity on the Internet” as TechCrunch writer Josh Constine puts it.

From now on, these two will be working together.

Yes, moot — A.K.A. Chris Poole — is joining Google:

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.

This may very well be the beginning of a new “social” era for Google, and on the rebound, for us social media managers.

Stay tuned.
