Web bulletin 2-channel moves to Singapore

09toky1.184Internet bad boy Hiroyuki Nishimura, whom I wrote an article about in last June’s WIRED, announced on his blog recently that he moved his notorious massive online bulletin 2-channel to Singapore. 2-channel, which was previously owned by Nishimura alone, is now owned by a Singaporean company called Packet Monster, Inc. What does this mean? It’s probably part of his strategy to avoid the gazillions of yen he owes via libel suits against the site. Or, maybe the rumors are true that the site’s existence is in serious jeopardy.
