My short bio: In October 2013 I founded 8ch.net after a psychedelic mushroom trip. I was browsing 4chan during the trip and thought it would be cool if I could have my own ``sub-4chan''. A few days later I wrote the code for it at 8chan.co, which later became 8ch.net after a partnership with the largest anonymous BBS in the world, 2ch.net (Japanese).

However, much before that, back when I lived in New York I did a documentary for "Al Jazeera America" after being robbed in the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Somehow that old documentary made it to the frontpage of /r/videos , so I figured I'd do an AMA if anyone has questions.

I'll be going out and will answer anything when I come back (if there even is anything to answer, lmao)

Jesus, that menu. I bet everything costs like $10 too.

New York never again.

hey man some of us are still stuck here.

thanks for the soylent btw, saved me 4 days worth of groceries.

lmao, that stuff was so nasty. Glad you enjoyed it though!

Throwaway23232a259 karma

How has your quality of life changed from the New York apartment to now living in the Philippines?

infinitechan617 karma

Much better now. I have 24/7 care that I can afford, Uber is cheap enough that it only costs ~$3 for a taxi ride (I have this cool lightweight Chinese power wheelchair with lithium ion batteries that's illegal in the US, hehe) and I have many mroe friends here than I ever did in NY.

I recommend anyone disabled that wants to try to make something of themselves just leave the US.

hivand371 karma

By illegal, I'm guessing you mean it hasn't been through FDA approval that triples its price?

infinitechan363 karma

Exactly.

amytee25242 karma

Surely it's more because you an American with a disability? I'd say that would get you further than being an Asian with a disability and living there....,

infinitechan98 karma

Indeed, having no income and no skills here would suck. There's no welfare.

TheonGryJy209 karma

Any chinese cartoon recommendations you wish to share with us?

infinitechan202 karma

8chan's mascot is Nano from Nichijou, partly due to the key on her back and partly due to her being my favorite character from any anime series. (I guess that's a ``waifu''.)

not__banksy185 karma

How do you feel about your AMA being hidden from the frontpage? You went from top 10 to no longer on the top 200 in the matter of 5 minutes.

infinitechan378 karma

Typical Reddit behavior to be honest.

YukitoBurrito166 karma

Back during my time in 4chan there was a constant chatter of their being paid posters promoting certain ideas or narritive. This seemed to be proven to be able to happen when it was found that many posts were made simultaneously across all boards with the same text, same picture, and strange random numerical filename, multiple times.

On Gamergate related boards and /pol/ there's still this chatter going around but I am not sure if it's because people are used to it, or if there's really forced/automated posting to push agendas on 8ch like there was on 4chan.

So, is 8ch being used as a platform to push narrative by someone or other?

And thanks for an alternative. Seriously, that places was a sinking ship.

infinitechan200 karma

If it is I don't have proof either way. I'm sure that companies shill on Reddit as well though, I've seen enough instances of it while investigating startups. Chiefs of marketing posting to Reddit, even CEOs, et cetera.

AshFair160 karma

A lot of comments on the video suggested you are getting taken advantage of by only getting your rent covered in exchange for your work. What is your response to those people?

infinitechan284 karma

I was being taken advantage of at the time.

I don't work for him anymore, and have not even been in the US since October 2014. :)

pantsoff123 karma

You are a great inspiration to others!

Congratulations on your success Hotwheels.

Do you plan on living indefinitely in the Philippines?

Any plans to visit Japan in the future?

infinitechan146 karma

Do you plan on living indefinitely in the Philippines?

Yes.

Any plans to visit Japan in the future?

Actually, yes! One of my friends just moved there so I plan to visit him this summer.

guy231102 karma

when people upload banned content to 8chan and someone else reports it, do you need to personally look at kiddie porn or gore or whatever to remove it? How much of your day involves removing such content? Has this led to misunderstandings with people who watch you work?

infinitechan176 karma

No, volunteers do all of that. I rarely handle the report queue unless it's a DMCA (copyrighted content) issue.

daffles99 karma

How big is your dick?

infinitechan212 karma

6" erect.

EaterOfFood99 karma

Have you tried balut? Do you like it?

infinitechan112 karma

Yes and yes. It's very good actually.

runningfromlions98 karma

In your opinion, do you feel that for the waves of internet users who experienced the rise of the Chans first-hand are better or worse equipped to handle societal interactions on the internet? Did all those troll threads teach a valuable lesson that those who come after will have to learn other ways? What do you feel the legacy impact of Chan culture will be a decade from now?

infinitechan174 karma

Better equipped.

I'm pretty sure we'll still have chans in ten years, and I hope that people can learn to appreciate that you can't have freedom of expression without anonymity. The founding fathers knew as much.

ONLY_POST_DANK_MEMES32 karma

What's your opinion on TOR?

infinitechan90 karma

I love it!

One thing I always didn't like about 4chan was that it's not actually anonymous from a network perspective, so much is blocked leaks aren't possible, everything can be easily traced back to the poster.

I made a Tor hidden service to combat this on 8chan, it has full posting permissions on some boards, and others minus photos (and some not at all, 8chan is fully customizable for board owners, our version of subreddit "head mods"). It's at http://fullchan4jtta4sx.onion

Troupple_Acolyte95 karma

How do you feel about reddit's move towards becoming a "safe space," and do you think it'll have to sacrifice controversial subs to do so?

Also, are there any subs, minus the obvious illegal ones, that you wouldn't allow on 8chan?

infinitechan200 karma

Reddit, being an actual company, always has to show "growth". When users start stagnating, the big wigs start panicking. "Is Reddit hostile and that's why no one is coming? How are we going to show Conde Nast we grew the company this quarter?"

I believe they are probably going to throw out the "problematic" users if it gets bad enough, but they also remember Digg. Whatever they do they'll be careful I'm sure.

ashlaaaaay90 karma

What do you feel about the current state of 8chan content wise. ATM, it seems that, aside from videogames and politics, the interests of the user-base are very specialized. How are you focusing on user growth, and where are these people gonna come from?

infinitechan147 karma

ATM, it seems that, aside from videogames and politics, the interests of the user-base are very specialized. How are you focusing on user growth, and where are these people gonna come from?

For its first year and a half, 8chan was very specialized. The two major boards were /legion/ (a roleplaying board) and /waifuist/ (a board about celebrity gossip).

8chan continues to be very specialized, and it will likely remain so. I always try to focus on improving the site's features (I'm rewriting the software with a friend: https://infinitydev.org ), what people do with what I made is their business. I don't really have a strategy for attracting users.

"If you build it they will come [maybe]"

JustAnotherGGBurner83 karma

I was watching that interview you did and winced when I saw you hitting the tap with your stick to turn it off.

I was curious, with brittle bone disease, do you feel pain at a lower threshold from pressure exerted on your bones or is it the same pain threshold most people have but the bones break before pain kicks in?

infinitechan216 karma

I've never been anyone else so I don't know how other people experience pain.

If you want to trade bodies however...

UberAndrew78 karma

How do you feel about Voat? It's trying to do something very similar to what you did with 8chan, but do you think it'll succeed, at least in the same manner 8chan did?

infinitechan160 karma

Well, 8chan is not like any of the other imageboards because you can't make your own board. Voat would be cool if it was more like an anonymous Reddit, but their anon features need work and don't seem to be a priority.

Basically they either need to differentiate themselves or Reddit has to fuck up massively for them to become popular.

gravy_ferry76 karma

How many hate emails do you get in the average week?

infinitechan152 karma

Ten on a good week.

shirtlords52 karma

Only 10?

infinitechan275 karma

If you write me one it will make 11! [email protected]

parasocks66 karma

Very cool site! I run an adult parody of Humble called Hump the Bundle. We've raised several thousand dollars for Able Gamers which supports disabled gamers.

I'll give $1,000 to the charity of your choice right now if you'll run a link to us on your site, and you'll make money from the tips you generate on the link too.

Deal? :)

infinitechan54 karma

Sure! Just the homepage?

I know that the OI Foundation could always use the money.

parasocks29 karma

Front page is great! Obviously the more places the better. Ship me your e-mail and I'll send you a link to use. Thanks!

OI Foundation it is, haven't heard of them, I'll have a look now.

ZergPan64 karma

How did you just write your own chan? Did you learn programming in high school or just interested in it for a long time?

infinitechan120 karma

How did you just write your own chan? Did you learn programming in high school or just interested in it for a long time?

I used to run Wizardchan, which was just an installation of vichan. From running Wizardchan I learned PHP, so after I left that site I knew enough about how vichan worked to add a lot of my own stuff to it, like board creation, ## Board Owner caps, a board stats page, more user scripts, et cetera.

I didn't start from scratch though, I added my stuff to an existing engine.

inyourarea62 karma

I'm a big proponent of freedom of speech, and that's why I loved 4chan in the beginning. M00t's ted talk about anonymity and free speech inspired me to push my art in a lot of ways. I write fairly offensive books, and believe the right to offend is a big part of free speech.

I've also noticed lately that free speech is under attack. The subbreddit /shitredditsays/ has an image of a person blowdrying a box of "freezed peaches," basically saying they don't think 'hate speech is free speech." M00t banned GamerGate threads claiming it was "harassing speech" and therefor not free speech.

I'm very troubled by all of this and this trend, and would like to commend you for your efforts towards keeping a free speech platform alive on the internet.

Now, with all that out of the way, I would like to know if you believe there are any limits to free speech, and if there are any, what are they?

infinitechan123 karma

Now, with all that out of the way, I would like to know if you believe there are any limits to free speech, and if there are any, what are they?

Free speech ends when it breaks the rights of others. Threats are not free speech, for example.

I don't believe "hate speech" exists though. I think that is made up. People should be free to be hateful if they wish, I hate a lot of things.

However, I really believe there is a matter of responsibility that too many people fail to grasp. Anonymous comments are the responsibility of the poster, not the forum's (or chan's) admins. We didn't write them, and the law recognizes as much (Communications Decency Act). Being a "moderator" does not make you the police, and deleting comments doesn't undo crimes. I leave things to the real police, and we have indeed received subpoenas when threats are posted, for example in our latest transparency report one was posted on /islam/.

Heyeahyeahyeah8 karma

I guess I'm ignorant but I was under the impression 8ch.net didn't collect IP's.

T_Dumbsford62 karma

Hi, thanks for taking the time to talk with us.

I'm wondering where you envision 8chan in the overall current culture of the internet? I'm talking specifically about the debate surrounding "free speech" vs cleaning up "distasteful" content. Do you feel like places like the *chans and reddit can still play a role in this conversation, or is it becoming a situation where unregulated spaces for conversation and debate are becoming marginalized, as opposed to the norm online?

Sorry, I know that's a bit meta, but I appreciate your answer.

infinitechan117 karma

They're definitely becoming marginalized. I like the Japanese system: hardly any Japanese news sites even have comment sections because they know everyone's just going to go discuss it on news4vip or newsplus on 2ch.net.

Meanwhile in the West you have crappy comment sections moderated to hell like the one on the Daily Mail, or the ones on Gawker sites (Kotaku et al).

I hope we can make free discourse the norm.

globalchill58 karma

Thank you for being so based.

Any thoughts on transhumanism?

Do you ever plan on meeting m00t? Have the two of you ever conversed directly?

infinitechan106 karma

Any thoughts on transhumanism?

Can't come soon enough.

Do you ever plan on meeting m00t? Have the two of you ever conversed directly?

No plan. I emailed him with a warning that I knew about the mod contract (give us all your dox, no compensation) and asked for his comment before going public, and he went public on the 4chan Tumblr blog. That's the most we've ever conversed, it was quite tense actually haha.

KalusPrime58 karma

What would have to happen for a board to get nuked?

Do you browse most boards on 8chan?

Do you feel that having user created and run boards results in better outlets for specific topics?

infinitechan97 karma

What would have to happen for a board to get nuked?

It would need to be just for posting illegal content or it would need to take up tons of resources (for example just stickies full to the post limit with 8MB junk files).

Do you browse most boards on 8chan?

There's over 5000, I browse like 3 regularly. /tech/ is my favorite one at the moment, /operate/ is where people try to get a hold of me for questions about the site, and /n/ is my board for news (it provides the news on the homepage).

Do you feel that having user created and run boards results in better outlets for specific topics?

Yes. I haven't really used Reddit so much so the only thing I can compare it to is 4chan. On 4chan all the boards are managed by one team, "Team 4chan". This is a bureaucracy, nothing gets done. New rules have to be approved by the whole team, a certain board can't have its own CSS, if you dared want to do an AMA (like send an email to a game developer and ask him to come on) it would have to go up through all the levels of centralized bureaucracy before it happens.

Meanwhile on 8chan I hardly do anything. Mark, guy who created /v/, will be like "yeah the guy who made Earthworm Jim is doing an AMA". I will think, "Earthworm Jim? What is that?", but I will say "Good to hear.".

That's the difference. Users are much better at managing all the communities than me. There's simply too many communities for me to spend cycles on all of them.

RKade858346 karma

What are your goals? What do you hope to accomplish before you die? Also, I enjoyed (and agree with) your article on eugenics. I'm in a similar (but not the same) boat. Stay frosty.

infinitechan104 karma

What are your goals? What do you hope to accomplish before you die?

I want to make a distributed imageboard, like Bitcoin or BitTorrent applied to imageboards. That for me is the endgame in all of this.

I've already accomplished more than I thought I ever would, though.

GamerGateFan26 karma

Are you familiar with http://getaether.net/ then? Nothing says the type of board it is distributing has to be the default one.

infinitechan37 karma

Interesting. The big problem with a system like that is combatting spam and dealing with large attachments (images).

Our current distributed project is called either "SRNd" or "NNTP-Overchan" depending on who you ask. It syncs posts over the NNTP (Usenet) protocol. It's working right now, but the frontend is somewhat hard to use and the code is very hard for others to extend (it uses string formatting for HTML templates for example). It also has some known DoS vectors I won't talk about ;)

Our idea is to allow NNTP-Overchan to be one of the potential backends to infinity so IB users know how to use it immediately.

ashlaaaaay45 karma

What are your honest feelings about reddit's userbase?

Do you feel that there is a space for persistent comments in a tree form, with some sort of user-driven sorting in the cancer free internet?

What are the biggest disadvantages of the imageboard format?

infinitechan129 karma

I don't think most Redditors can really cope with a chan. You have to read the whole thread, not just skim the top comments. Spam is a common occurence. Images are very in your face. There are no accounts and you cannot PM other users outside of writing replies to them one-time and they just have to happen to see it.

I like all those features though, but when imageboard users complain that Reddit is going to take over I don't believe it for a second because 8chan is nothing like Reddit outside of the board creation feature.

eponym_45 karma

What vidya you play?

infinitechan78 karma

I got a 3DS recently, but no games yet ;_;

TyroneFreeman41 karma

Hey HW, how does care for disabled people compare in the Philippines to the US? I imagine, although much cheaper, there must also be less advancements to work with.

infinitechan81 karma

There are already no advancements in the United States. The only thing OI "research" has come up with in the West is that it's incurable and maybe using osteoporosis drugs works sometimes.

Care is much better here because you can pay aides privately. Average wage here is $6/day, for aides I pay around $8.

sakuramboo38 karma

Any chance on getting more videos of Hachi? Why did you nix that idea?

infinitechan60 karma

I nixed the idea due to Hachi getting old and me running out of things to make videos about (once you do the laser pointer thing it's all down hill from there)

763555536 karma

What distro do you use?

infinitechan71 karma

Arch Linux.

SKELETORQUEMADA32 karma

What is the best way to practice programming?

I've been fucking around with Ruby and JS for about 3 years (making small scripts), and have taken classes in C# and Java, but I have yet to make anything major outside of a class project and am considering using libre software/OSes (edit: currently on Windows 7).

Any recommendations?

infinitechan66 karma

Any recommendations?

Make something. Especially hack existing open source software and contribute your changes back. 8ch's software is not completely original, I hacked board creation into an existing FOSS imageboard engine called vichan.

Andrewnopoulos27 karma

Do you have a favourite board and if so, what is it?

EDIT (thought of another question): What's the story surrounding Zoe Quinn supposedly sending herself harassment on Wizardchan?

infinitechan39 karma

/tech/

peanutcrackers26 karma

Looking back at the article you posted on the neo-nazi Stormfront-affiliate The Daily Stormer, how do you feel about it?

What do you think of the reaction to it?

infinitechan67 karma

I don't regret it. I'm writing an article for them about payment processors actually, as Mr. Anglin, the author, was kicked off of PayPal just like 8ch.

The reaction was juvenile. Don't judge a book by its cover.

csolisr22 karma

One of the biggest issues with any web community (whether it's on Reddit, 8Chan, Facebook or GNU Social) is that it can become an "echo chamber", where people with similar beliefs reinforce said beliefs while marginalizing users with dissenting opinions. Do you fear that the current structure of 8Chan (division of boards, no specific "main page") may exacerbate the issue on your site?

infinitechan59 karma

I think that it may, but I think that the situation is even worse on 4chan, even though it doesn't have board creation.

For example, 4chan has quite a few silly global rules, but the most humorous one is that "furry" content is not allowed. Furries are people that are into drawings of people with animal features getting fucked, as you may know.

That's the only reason 8ch.net/furry is so big. If they would have just made a furry board however many years ago ours would be nowhere today.

4chan's /pol/ board tends to be extremely right-wing because all the leftists simply give up and leave, but 8ch has /leftypol/, which is the third most popular politics board on the site after /pol/ (Politically Iincorrect) and /n/ (News).

I don't think it's proper for me to decide what people want to discuss.

CBate20 karma

I had the other side of a mushroom trip when I went over a third story balcony causing a spinal cord injury last year, putting me in a manual chair. Since then I've had major hurdles even relocating across state lines; how did you manage moving out of the country?

infinitechan49 karma

Ouch, sorry to hear that.

Relocating within the United States is always more of a pain for me than relocating outside...the reason is there's so much to do if you're American and disabled. You can't work or else you won't get nursing care, so you have to be on welfare. So that means you have a lot to coordinate, federal SSI transfer, state Medicaid transfer, food stamps if applicable. I moved from New York to New Jersey and back and the sheer amount of paperwork on me from the years 15-18 must fill an 18 wheeler.

Once you're outside of the US where medical laws aren't so strict things change, but again, I am a special case as I have a skill I can take anywhere. You can afford to pay your aides yourself, go to any needed doctors yourself, there's nothing to coordinate and no bureaucrat to wait for. If there is one you just find another company.

Free market at work. I also voted for Ron Paul if you can't tell.

fuzzycuffs17 karma

What was the process of moving to the Philippines like? I'm an expat myself but this country is very strict on immigrants. Moving here is not easy.

infinitechan30 karma

Find a wife or get a work visa through a company.

I'm doing the second one but I'd rather be doing the first!

CakeManBeard15 karma

Have you ever posed as a toddler? If so, for what purpose?

infinitechan37 karma

Nope. I'd be a very fat toddler if I was one, I think that's child abuse in America now ;)

Nathan_Explosion714 karma

How do you forsee halfchan dying?

Sold to some sjw company or shut down after the new cuck mods go on eventual power trips and ruin what little is left to ruin?

How smug are you knowing that 8chan has accomplished more (joining 2ch.net) in 2 years than halfchan in 10? I think only jlist bothers with halfchan.

infinitechan30 karma

Sold to some sjw company or shut down after the new cuck mods go on eventual power trips and ruin what little is left to ruin?

I have no idea, but I know that moot is selling the site, he said as much to the Rolling Stone:

http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/features/4chans-overlord-christopher-poole-reveals-why-he-walked-away-20150313

Whoever buys it is going to shape what happens to the site. It could go good or very, very bad. I personally think it only has three main people who will buy it: either a newly rich San Francisco-area tech guy who got into some startup (good route), a porn company for the ad space (middle route), or a data mining company who wants to "organically" shill products on the site via fake threads about them and sell user information (nightmare route).

Androlphegax13 karma

Why do you use plebbit for your AMA when you can use 8chan?

infinitechan57 karma

The users are here! I'd rather use Voat.co if I wanted tree text only comments actually, Reddit moderators tend to be dicks.

leucexnymph13 karma

What do you think about the internet here in Philippines? Which ISP you use and how fast?

infinitechan18 karma

The internet here sucks. I really want Converge ICT but you have to own property in specific parts of Manila.

ElMayordomo12 karma

Hotwheels, you are a personal hero of mine. Can I shout you out on my album?

infinitechan17 karma

Sure!

jingletard12 karma

Do you feel responsible for illegal content being posted on 8chan since they're using your platform? Is the hassle of all this worth it? If your job became too hectic would you just say 'fuck it' and throw in the towel? What would make you quit? On one hand you've got free speech but on the other hand, you've got the bleak reality of having to be a figurehead for a chan which we all know can be legally and emotionally draining given moots retirement over the fappening and gamergate. I'm just wondering what your outlook is on the responsibility of owning and moderating a controversial image board.

infinitechan28 karma

I do not feel responsible and legally am not so I think the hassle is worth it.

The only thing that could make me throw in the towel at this point is going bankrupt.

STARVE_THE_BEAST5 karma

The only thing that could make me throw in the towel at this point is going bankrupt.

How secure are you and 8chan in that regard at this point?

infinitechan21 karma

8chan is secure so long as 2ch backs us, and they seem to have no intention of dropping the project.

I'm secure so long as I can still find freelance work.

katesprite10 karma

Mm, I'm debating whether or not it's right to come to you for this question...

I'm a Filipina, except I've never lived in the Philippines before and can't speak a word of Tagalog. I'm moving to Manila next year to finish Grade 11-Grade 12. I guess my family will mix in the 'expatriates' group because my dad's been an expat in other countries throughout Asia.

Any advice for me? Blending in, places to eat, funny experiences?

I don't visit the Philippines quite often, actually. I might start learning a few phrases before moving haha..ha...(my pronunciation is terrible)

infinitechan24 karma

Any advice for me? Blending in, places to eat, funny experiences?

You eventually will get used to the constant smell of exhaust and cigarette smoke.

I quickly realized that efficiency is not really a priority here, so learning patience is paramount. There is a huge bridge that connects two malls near me. There is an electric ramp that you just stand on and it carries you on one end and stairs on the other. The architect didn't think that was a problem apparently.

So far as places to eat, there are more American brands here than in most small towns. McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, etc, you'll feel fine.

Also, lots of people speak English, but it does tend to vary with education level.

I think my favorite city here is Kalibo, I've only been there once though. Everyone is much more friendly than in Manila.

Funny experiences...one time I wanted some cough drops, so I sent my aide. She came back, no cough drops. I was still coughing though so I said I wanted to come with her and make sure. I asked the attendant for cough drops, "sorry we don't have". Behind her there were Halls. I said what are those. "Cough suppresant sir". I think that goes back to patience.

griggski7 karma

I'm so glad to hear the Philippines is treating you well! I'm an American, about to marry a Filipina, and I plan on retiring within the decade at a fairly young age. I have had many people naysay my desire to leave the states and live there, but I don't think they fully comprehend just how well you can live for such a small amount of money, plus the people are super friendly. Any major drawbacks to relocating there? How is the medical care there?

infinitechan12 karma

My only gripe with the medical care is how strict it is to get painkiller prescriptions. So many people die here in needless pain, for a 10 year period they didn't even write any morphine prescriptions and were actually sued by the United Nations.

Other than that it's much cheaper and much better quality if you know exactly what you need.

YukitoBurrito5 karma

Oh, one big question to settle things once and for all. A large number of people who do not like 8chan scream "ooh, they host and support child porn!"

The main reason for this is some extremely pixelated screenshots of what could either be a person, a car, or jello pudding. Can't tell, but they take the author's word for it that it's CP.

So can we please have it direct from you:

Does 8chan support/condone/host or in any way allow child pornography?

infinitechan24 karma

Does 8chan support/condone/host or in any way allow child pornography?

No.

PS hook me up with pic saying anything bout me username :P

I doubt it. Starting an imageboard isn't hard, especially since I open sourced my version with user board creation. (only FOSS engine with that feature)

Killing me wouldn't solve anything, a new one would appear soon after.

fuckreddith8charmy-5 karma

How does it feel being a sell-out fucking cripple?

infinitechan6 karma

8chan has been a combination of Reddit and 4chan since day one.

I do not hate Reddit and never have, I think the two sites are very different due to their formats though. As I wrote above...

I don't think most Redditors can really cope with a chan. You have to read the whole thread, not just skim the top comments. Spam is a common occurence. Images are very in your face. There are no accounts and you cannot PM other users outside of writing replies to them one-time and they just have to happen to see it.

I like all those features though, but when imageboard users complain that Reddit is going to take over I don't believe it for a second because 8chan is nothing like Reddit outside of the board creation feature.

I look forward to seeing a screenshot of this post on /operate/, /meta/ or both. :^)
