Pirillo is a great example of someone who has taken the web and turned it into his own publishing powerhouse.
He broadcasts live multiple times each day, using web technology like UStream.TV and then publishes his videos on to YouTube, where he has a dedicated channel.
"My model for publishing video on YouTube is not to have seven people watch one video but to have one person watch seven videos," he says in his 1,000th video, explaining why he posts so regularly.
Audiences for his YouTube videos are in the hundreds and in total more than 668,000 people have watched them. But it's not about the size of the audience it's about the strength of the community.
During live broadcasts viewers can leave comments that appear live on screen and are later embedded in the YouTube video.
Pirillo talks to his audience in a way that mainstream media - the BBC included - is only beginning to understand.
His videos are on every aspect of technology, and often "how-tos" - from USB switches to backing up your computer and reviews of the latest devices and products.
He also co-organises the Gnomedex blogging conference each year in Seattle.
Congratulations to Chris Pirillo. Here's his video:
