moot a.k.a Christopher Poole Of 4Chan.org - Time's World's Most Influential Person


Time Magazine has named 4chan.org founder 'moot' (real name: Christopher Poole) as the most influential person in the world. The 21-yr-old college student garnered 16,794,368 votes and an average influence rating of 90 (out of a possible 100) to beat the likes of Barack Obama, Manny Pacquiao and Stephen Colbert.

Since moot launched 4chan.org in 2003, the site has given birth to Internet memes as diverse as Lolcats and Rickrolling. 4chan averages 13 million page views a day and 5.6 million visitors a month

But according to TechCrunch, the annual online poll of the top 100 most influential people in government, science, technology & the arts was flooded with fake votes by followers of 4chan. TIME.com managing editor Josh Tyrangiel says moot is no less deserving. I would remind anyone who doubts the results that this is an Internet poll," he says. "Doubting the results is kind of the point."
