Open Web Advocate Chris Messina to join Google

TechCrunch is reporting today that Open Web rockstar Chris Messina is joing Google!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris through the Open Web Foundation ( and Data Portability initiative ( and can unequivocally state that he is truly one of the thought leaders in technology today. I know he will do well at Google and all of which will mean bigger and better things for us all. My advice to Google: listen to Chris, give him whatever resources he wants, and sit back and take credit for your brilliance to bring him into the fold. (oh yeah, and don’t forget DISO !)

And... Happy Birthday Chris! What a great birthday present!!!
