How Do 4chan Users Feel About canv.as?

How Do 4chan Users Feel About canv.as? | Canv.as | Scoop.it
This afternoon, Christopher Poole, a.k.a. moot, announced the closed beta launch of Canvas (canv.as), which aspires to be the best place to share and play with images. The site looks pretty enough , but what makes this launch notable is moot's role as the founder and administrator of 4chan.org , the feared and revered imageboard and hub of breathtaking creativity and unspeakable villainy. Thanks to its founder and its image-centric nature, comparisons to 4chan are inevitable for Canvas, which raised $625,000 in funding. TechCrunch guesses that more than a few of the 4chan crowd may head over to Canvas to take a gander. Maybe so, but Canvas, which some in the tech press have referred to as 4chan 2, has its work cut out for it if it wants to win over the sizable population of 4chan 1.0.

4chan Founder Unleashes Canvas On The World

4chan Founder Unleashes Canvas On The World | Canv.as | Scoop.it


Canvas launches today for 4,000 or so lucky souls.

Seven year old 4chan, created by now-23 year old Christopher Poole, continues to delight and enrage the Internet. Major Internet memes were either created or spread on 4Chan, as were more denial of service attacks than we can count. Twelve million or so people a month visit the site, and at any given moment there are 60,000 - 70,000 people on 4chan.

4chan's success, says Poole, is based on three things. Real time collaboration as visitors riff back and forth about posted items, often pictures. A true shared experience as an item pops up on 4chan and then eventually falls off the board (there are no archives). And fluid identity - to add content on 4chan all you have to do is write something, upload a file and complete a captcha. There are no user accounts.

But 4chan isn't Poole's ultimate goal. He's taken what works there, changed other things, and created something wholly new - Canvas.
