  9. How Hiroyuki will sell 4chan data:
  10.  
  11. Step 1: Brazil Future Search will make a real-time search engine for 4chan text data only. They will forgo images because images are not important in data mining.
  12. Step 2: The new 4chan search engine will provide data to Effyis (boardreader.com).
  13. Step 3: Boardreader.com will add 4chan search to their board search.
  14. Step 4: Effyis (boardreader.com) will provide a firehose of data to Hottolink (their parent company) to use in data mining.
  15. Step 5: American companies will begin purchasing analytics data from Hottolink.
  16. Step 6: There is no step 6, you have already had your data sold to the highest bidder.
  17.  
  18. After Hiroyuki's initial announcement of purchasing 4chan, Hottolink stock has risen 60 points. This is likely due to insider trading; Hottolink has yet to publicly announce anything regarding 4chan.
