The 4chan community is one of the most interesting group of people you will ever come across online. They all contribute to a community board under the name 'anonymous', no one has an identity, no social hierarchy.
The interesting thing about them is that they all work together for a greater good or bad.
The following is thread 'OMG A FALLING WEEVIL' is amazing. They all work together to tell a story and all acknowledge the different parts of the story. Please read the story before reading on. The thread follows the following structure.
Desperate to save the weevil
The Anonymous shows a photo of it dead
Anonymous all start mourning the loss
Another Anonymous states that the Weevil is god
Weevil is god.
This type of co-ordination with no social hierarchy is unheard of online. Anyone know of any other examples like this?
4chan also recently hacked The Times Online Poll another good read.
