Why Chris Messina Leaves Google for NeonMob?
Chris Messina G+
 
 

The inventor of the hashtag, Chris Messina has set off on a journey of self-discovery from Google. After he leaves Google, he will be headed for NeonMob, a digital art set up.

#ChrisMessina #leaves #Google for #NeonMob. The man was a genius for he brought us the by now ubiquitous hashtag feature that allows conversations to occur online in a specific # trend. Chris Messina had led a modest existence at Google despite his innovative invention which has become universal in its online scope. Six years ago he devised the net tool that was to achieve so much popularity. Ever since then conversations can occur in groups online without any hitches. The man had been concentrating on design and other aspects of the web at Google after that period of creativity. Redesigning was the main field of Chris. Some of Google’s prominent features such as brand badges, profiles and the +1 button were all products of his extremely fertile mind.

He was also responsible for the Google Developers knowledge base. However, after three years of service, Chris feels he should move on to more adventurous avenues. Seven days from now he will be paying NeonMob a visit. The art house is where he wants to restart his passionate exploration of creative technology. Chris is going to be creating a community at the new set up that he will be joining soon. Chris was a daring developer and UX designer at Google. He wants to expand his repertoire and find new channels of creative and artistic growth. And he is the sort of person who wants to test the limits of human ingenuity. 

Chris states in his blog that, "Next week I'll begin work at a 6-person startup based in San Francisco called NeonMob (sign up here!). I'll be focused on building a community and growing the service, which I believe is building an important, new platform for digital creatives and art enthusiasts."


Why Chris left Google for a really small start-up? Probably for #toTheFuture. He gives his opinion on this. He said, "I’m super positive about the future of Google+ and Google, and have a great amount of hope in the increasing role that design leadership is playing across the company — and it was time for me to try my hand at something a little smaller and closer to a few dormant passions: art and collecting!"
