Ever wondered where the online hashtag on social media started? Well look no further. Today we have the guest Chris Messina on the show. Chris has spoken at TEDx, SXSW, Google I/O, Microsoft’s Future Decoded and many other leading conferences as well as featured in many other publications like The New York Times, Business Week, LA Times, Washington Post, and Wired. He tells us about the infancy of the hashtag, how it began and how it all rolled out. We talk about tech today (like Republic the investment platform for businesses), projects that he's worked on as well as his journey to being #1 Product Hunter on Product Hunt where many businesses launch their software to the next level!
