It didn't take long for 4chan creator Chris Poole to find a new home after selling his brainchild. Google has hired Christopher Poole, the founder of the controversial internet image-board 4chan. Google has hired him to take advantage of his 12 years of experience "building online communities." It's not clear exactly what he will do in google. However, it would not be surprising if he gives Google+ a boost, improving its recent focus on community and giving you more reasons to visit.
Poole established 4chan as the message board where almost anything goes, and indirectly helped launch Anonymous, legendary pranks and countless internet memes -- he's jumping from the internet's counterculture to the mainstream in less than a year. While it's not surprising given the incentives (Poole didn't make a lot of money from 4chan before the sale).
