He Web's most infectious memes and catchphrases Wired Today it has over 12 million monthly users with enormous social influence to match Epic Win is the first book to tell 4chan's story Longtime blogger and 4chan expert Cole Stryker writes with a voice that is engrossingly informative and approac. Looking for a book as I was to explain internet culture to your mom This will probably fit the bill Not a lot of new information to anyone who has spent any amount of time poking around the internet but then that s not why I picked it up I ve seen some valid criticism of this book floating around large chunks seem cut and pasted there is little original content and there is something sort of inherently shitty about someone taking a bunch of free not for profit content generated by others compressing it into a book and selling it If it s any consolation a book project like this small print run mid range publisher is not exactly a fast track to fortune It ll probably keep Stryker in tacos for a year if he s lucky And despite the opportunistic nature of the project and Stryker s unfortunate tendency to sound a little snide some genuine idealism shines through It s clear that Stryker really wants to communicate to a non internet addicted audience what is so beautiful and so horrifying about the internet and that what s really important is fighting for our freedom to express ourselves either way It would have been nice if this book had delved a little into the ethos of geek culture but whatever There are other sources for that And the trip down meme memory lane was really uite enjoyableSo in short I think my parents and people like them who are baffled by alarmist news specials about legions of unhinged hackers lurking around the internet causing random mayhem will learn a lot which is all I really hoped for from this book

Epic Win for Anonymous

4chan is the Anti Facebook a site that radically encourages anonymity It spawned the hacktivist group Anonymous which famously defended WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange by bringing down MasterCard's and Visa's Web sites Created by a 15 year old wunderkind in 2003 it is the creative force behind t. The author works as an online journalist and he decides to break Rules 1 and 2 and talk about what goes on at 4chan I have to think that the title is an attempt at placating the denizens or to grab attention First he proceeds through a list of the boards and explains that mostly they are for images with additions prank alterations and captions Such as Japanese anime cartoons cats autopsy slides gross diseases and cartoon sex between men We are later assured that child porn may crop up but is swiftly removed and reported b is called the random topic board and many people btards contribute anonymously Insults are commonplace as is strong language and seemingly abusive talk But if everyone including the poster is being called a bad name how bad is it really Then we get a potted history of the boards from 2chan a Japanese anime board which inspired 15 year old Christopher Poole calling himself moot to start his own board called 4chan because he didn t speak Japanese He invited everyone to join in and there would be no rules Later he started an art site called Canvas We are told that many memes cultural gimmicks get started on 4chan as bright or bored people kid around with images and captions in spare time Here the author makes the mistake of thinking that everyone uses the social media he does Reddit Tumblr Twitter Facebook whatever no I don t use any of them So much of what he was saying however nicely explained was wasted on me He makes one brief reference to AOL boards in the early days detailing that those days were slow and expensive due to dial up modems at home pay subscription and pay for time I used CompuServe from mid nineties and there is no mention We had similarly separate chat boards with mods We get a mention that women are sometimes insulted or instructed to show images of themselves stripping on 4chan If they do fool them This is a laddish chattery abuse slinging culture More recently than publication a young woman was doxxed after stripping with as reuested a bottle of her medication all the lads needed to find out who she was Her images were sent to her family and friends Some btards had spoken against doing this but with no conseuences to the doers they proceeded At the end we get a look at how some members working together formed Anonymous and carried out DDoS attacks mixed with other attacks on Scientology and other groups they disliked They managed to hack into a major security company To read what I consider a better look at this hacking see This Machine Kills Secrets How WikiLeakers Hacktivists and Cypherpunks Are Freeing the World s Information by Andy Greenberg However Greenberg another journalist did not appear to have been able to get anyone in Anonymous to talk to him whereas Stryker being already on 4chan got uotes from members of both Neither man tells us that some women took part in the protests against Scientology Pages 286 304 contain references and an index I counted 16 names which I could be sure were female This is an unbiased reviewPostscript I review this book on 5th July and on 6th July I get a phishing e mail allegedly from Blockchain saying in the headline that my access to a Bitcoin purse has been blocked

    review originally written for CCLaP and also this book wound up on my CCLaP best of 2011 listOkay let me start by saying that I have never been on 4chan I know what it is I know what it does and I know how it works I've just never felt compelled to actually slog through it But that doesn't mean I'm not utterly fascinated by it and I certainly understand what an awesome in both senses cultural force it is and how it represents ev

    so I have a good friend I've always thought of as a btard I don't know if he really is one but he's definitely a professional troll I know when people think about 4chan they think of child porn but it's so much than that I could tell you but then the review would have to be as long as this book

    I went into this book expecting an analysis and history of Anonymous the hacker group but the book focuses on a history of internet memes and how they arise primarily from 4chan Anonymous' home The book is a great walk down memory lane for anyone who's been on the Internet since at least the 90s reminding you that sites like Stile Project and Fark were places you used to love visiting It also reminds you of the sharp delineation between th

    The problem with this book was that it was positioned and marketed as a look deep inside Anonymous Instead it was a primer on weird web culture for outsiders There's a place for that but that's not what I was looking for

    Well I picked this book up uite a few years ago now and finally read it It was not what I was expecting I thought it would be a historical look at the big take downs of Anonymous Instead it was a history of the social side of the internet I didn’t need that but it was interesting to realize how many sites I’v

    Interesting read and study on the style of pseudo anonymity and the meme culture The churn of creativity and the freedom of being anonymous to a point here is when the moral compass is missing or miss tuned or tuned only
