Chris Pirillo

Chris Pirillo is a night owl. Tune into his live video stream at, and chances are he’s there, typing away and chatting to his global community, even if it’s the early hours of the morning for him. Hundreds of others will be watching, even at times when the camera is pointing at an empty desk in a dark room. Chris has done something few people ever achieve. He’s turned himself into a brand.

The 35-year-old entrepreneur and founder of tech news blog network Lockergnome says a live show that’s always on made perfect sense for him. “I’ve always wanted to do it,” Chris explains. “It was a question of being able to do it, and that remained elusive up until recently, about a year ago. Not to say live video streaming hasn’t been available, it just wasn’t affordable. I saw it as a way I could produce more content in an easier fashion in front of a live audience. I thought, ‘Why not involve the audience with the entire process?’”
