Pirillo hosts an annual conference called Gnomedex. Gnomedex is a technology conference located each year in Seattle, Washington and is tailored to what he calls the "tech-savvy" enthusiast: bloggers, podcasters and others with technology related interests.
Pirillo was the creator and also co-hosted the first "Call-for-Help-a-Thon" on TechTV. The "Call-for-Help-a-Thon" was an all day event on TechTV held near Christmas and shot on the set used by Call for Help, which allowed people to call in all day with questions about computer problems and general technology.
Pirillo's personal website is often ranked number one under the search term "Chris" on Google.
