IamA disabled American expatriate in the Philippines who founded 8ch.net (4chan clone where users make boards like Reddit). An Al Jazeera documentary I did over a year ago is on on the frontpage of r/videos. AMA!
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)
