About Eli Pariser

Eli Pariser is the President of Upworthy and GOOD Worldwide. He has dedicated his career to figuring out how technology can elevate important topics in the world — as an author, an online organizer, and most recently, as a co-founder of Upworthy. Eli served as the executive director of MoveOn.org from 2004-2009, growing membership to more than 5 million members and raising over $120 million. He also co-founded Avaaz.org, which is now the largest online advocacy organization in the world. In 2011, Eli published the bestselling book, The Filter Bubble: What the Internet Is Hiding from You. Eli founded Upworthy with longtime collaborator Peter Koechley in March 2012. The pair set out to prove once and for all that what’s important can be incredibly popular, even if what’s popular isn’t usually important.
