Chris Pirillo is a Web entrepreneur and online personality — that’s the only way I can describe him.
He has been online since 1992, and has a well-known site called Lockergnome.com. In the video below, he says he “lives on the Internet” — I can identify with that, especially these days when I feel as if I’m chained to my computer.
The video has some great points about developing a personal brand online and making a business out of running online communities. Don’t let his campy, half-humorous delivery fool you. He drops little gems here and there.
My favorite point is where Chris says, “You can find me pretty much anywhere online. * * * I’m everywhere. There’s not one website that allows me to have membership that I have not joined. OMNIPRESENT. That’s what you have to be these days.” So true.
PS, check out his use of the word “pancake” – it’s a little test he throws in to see if people really watched the entire video.
