I suspect that there's going to be a book about 4chan at some point in the future. An actual book about the history of the site, not a meme like pic related. If such a book were written, what things would it cover, ideally?
Books about websites don't really work. Even the movie about Facebook wasn't amazingly popular. Because anyone who cares can find out that knowledge with a simple Google search or they've been there long enough to know about it all. It's not like a person where there's people to ask questions about, letters to go through, historians to ask stuff, etc.
And it's already mentioned in the only capacity it was ever popular in during moot's TED talk. A place where you can anonymously say things and have freedom of speech. Granted, the freedom of speech shit is rather up for debate sometimes, but nonetheless, it allows a lot more freedom than most others do. Especially since permabans got phased out for the most part and bans here are easy to bypass.
So, it'll be mentioned in videos and whatnot, but there's just not enough "meat" so to speak to fill up an entire book.
Jesus fucking christ, look at some of the related "books".

I hope these "authors" die and slow and painful death, alone and impoverished. Fucking cancer.
I visited the 4chan news boards in the past, but the history of 4chan is known to have an impact on internet culture. That's the entertaining side that I enjoyed as a kid. The more serious aspect has to do with anonymity and freedom of speech.
