Shii is an important historical figure and primary source in the field of English-language anonymous forums, like world2ch and 4chan.
He served as one of 4chan's original moderators, but was overthrown during the crisis of the Civil War Era. He is also a major contributor to Wikipedia, especially on those articles pertaining to Otaku culture and 2channel.
Shii's Personal Wiki (DOWN)
*As of 2013, Shii has deleted/disabled his wiki. The Bibliotheca Anonoma has released complete archive here: https://github.com/bibanon/everything-shii-knows
Shii's wiki, called "Everything Shii Knows", was one of the first major personal wikis in existence. It was created in his disgust with the decisions Wikipedia had to make in a choice between editing anarchy and bureaucratic uselessness. He suggested that people should instead make their own personal wikis, which could then be synced together; an idea we adopted when basing the Bibliotheca Anonoma on a git-based wiki.
Shii collected all the random stuff he wrote, and some important stories he archived from Wikichan on this personal wiki. His wiki was a direct inspiration for the work of the Bibliotheca Anonoma, and was the only surviving reference to Wikichan, another important inspiration.
That wiki contained all his personal essays on recent and past events and subjects, along with a collection of bits from Wikichan that would have been forgotten otherwise.
Most of his collected stories were already saved and reorganized on the Bibliotheca Anonoma, listed below:
Many of Shii's essays, translations, and other projects contained interesting bits of wisdom and rare knowledge here and there. Scrap them from the archives, and move them to the Bibliotheca Anonoma.
- Shiichan Anonymous BBS
- Waifu Essay
- Church of Latter Day Yukkuris - Some stuff might be preserved here
- The Genesis of Yukkuri
- Digg Clones
- Gomanism Sengen - Shii attempted to translate some of this manga. Thankfully, those translations are saved on other sites.
- Zybourne Clock
- Bibliography of Michael Ende
- A History of Eroge - Satoshi Todome - It says "non-redistributable", but a good lot did that do for us.
