I met Hiroyuki in 2011 and we became fast friends, bonding over our shared passion for creating and managing online communities.
The streamed video is available here, and a higher quality video is forthcoming (give us a few weeks). have all been debated for years, but while the questions have remained the same, the 4chan of today is not the 4chan of yesterday.
Last month, 4chan was accessed by 22.5 million unique visitors.
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.
I founded 4chan eleven and a half years ago at the age of 15, and after more than a decade of service, I've decided it's time for me to move on.
I'll need time away to decompress and reflect, but I look forward to one day returning to 4chan as its Admin Emeritus or just another Anonymous, and also writing more about my experience running 4chan on my personal blog.
