FULL CIRCLE by moot - 9/21/15 @ 10:00AM EDT#

Today I'm pleased to announce that Hiroyuki Nishimura, best known as the founder of 2channel, has taken my place as the owner of 4chan.
Hiroyuki is a pioneer in the world of anonymous communities, and can be thought of as the great-grandfather of 4chan. His creation of 2channel in 1999 sparked an era of anonymous-centric web culture in Japan that led to the creation of Futaba Channel, the site that inspired 4chan. None of us would be using 4chan today—or potentially anyanonymous image board—if it weren't for him.
I met Hiroyuki in 2011 and we became fast friends, bonding over our shared passion for creating and managing online communities. He is one of few individuals with a deep understanding of what it means to provide a digital home for tens of millions of people for more than a decade. There is nobody more qualified than Hiroyuki to lead 4chan, and I can't think of a person better suited for the task.
4chan sits on the eve of two great milestones—its 2 billionth post and 12th birthday. It has been a great privilege to serve as 4chan's founder and steward for almost twelve years, and I can't wait to see what lays in store under Hiroyuki's experienced leadership.

    1. Actually, 8chan is owned by the guy that owns 2ch and hotwheels is administrating it. So far the owner of 2ch has been doing significantly better and significantly more legal stuff than the new owner of 4chan.

      So as far as the owner situation goes, it is doing better. It's sad that it's a slow piece of shit.

  12. Great, so 4chan now belongs to a Japanese criminal. Seriously, Hiroyuki is wanted in Japan for leaking the private data of his site's users, and is believed to be hiding in France. If you own a 4chan pass, beware.
