Chris Messina

Creator of the hashtag

I’ve spent over 15 years living on the edge of social technology.

I’m best known for inventing the hashtag, but I’ve also designed products and experiences for Google and Uber, founded startups, and changed the world with the creation of other social innovations, like coworking and BarCamp.

Currently I am a product consultant and digital nomad, and travel the world speaking about social technology, product design, and founder culture and mental fitness.
