Killer Spaces: theChive’s Nearly Safe For Work Austin Office

Techvibes October 31st, 2016

In 2007, brothers John & Leo Resig gave up their day jobs to start a digital publishing property they named Resignation Media in Venice Beach, California. Their first digital property, theChive, started in 2008 as a simple comedic photo blog and has become one of the world’s most popular websites and the company’s flagship property.

TheChive’s name is derived from a combination of Chicago and Venice Beach, the cities where John and Leo were living when the company launched. In it’s eight years theChive has evolved into an oddly addictive corner of the web, intersecting fail videos, pop-culture, cute animals, barely dressed women and heartwarming charity work–oh and Bill Murray.

Albeit peculiar and not without controversy, theChive’s simple mission is to make the world 10% happier, and it arguably does exactly that and with swagger, self identifying as “Probably the Best Site in the World.”
