Chris Messina (SpreadFirefox) Provides Content

I am delighted to announce another source of excellent stories and interview content for the book. This time it is Chris Messina who is behind Spread Firefox, BarCamp, and coworking and open web standards initiatives.

Chris arrived in San Francisco four years ago and began volunteering for the Mozilla Foundation, leading the Spread Firefox community marketing project, helping to raise over $220,000 in microdonations to put a two-page spread, which he also designed, into the New York Times helping to increase Firefox’s downloads to over 50 million in its first six months.

He went on to co-found social web browser Flock. Later, he co-founded Citizen Agency with Tara Hunt, and was named one of the Digital Utopians and People Who Populate Web 2.0 in the San Francisco Chronicle in 2006 after his work on WineCamp.
