Moot is Unimpressed: Facebook and Google might be the belles of the ball with investors, advertisers and hundreds of millions of consumers, but they’re doing it wrong, according to Christopher Poole, better known as Moot, the founder of Internet meme site 4chan. In Poole’s view, the Internet giants have a confused and disingenuous view of identity. To them, their social networks are a mirror of who people are.
