Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

As a current High School student I know first hand how much kids are expected to plan their lives from a very early age. By 8th grade my home economics teacher had us do a presentation on what we wanted to be “when we grow up” and what college we…Continue

High Scores: A Classroom Model

When I am not writing or out fighting crime dressed as a large marsupial (I'm Koalaman,) I spend my days working in the field of education, and I am fascinated by the way education has changed and how it hasn't. (I have written about it before.) The more I have observed and the more I have researched I have become convinced that if there is a way to fix an broken classroom system it is through the use of video games. Now, I know that sounds crazier than anthropomorphic animal starfighter pilots, but bear…

Bachelor thesis on Nerdfighteria (Questionnaire)


I'm a student at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. Right now I'm in the process of writing my Bachelor thesis in Global Studies, and have chosen the subject of Nerdfighteria. More specifically the purpose of my study is to examine ideas among Nerdfighters about things like society, morals and action for positive change. 

The material for the essay will be a selection of the answers to a questionnaire and six depth interviews with different Nerdfighters (participants in the questionnaire who agree to be interviewed). I would be glad if some of you would answer my questionnaire. Unfortunately, because of research ethical decisions and practical decisions I've had to make, you have to be 21 or over to participate - but I will share my results with all of you here afterwards, if you're interested. 

Here is the link for the questionnaire: …

I have a blog!

I didn't even know this was a thing on the ning until I saw someone else's blog.  I used to have a blog back in the dinosaur age of the internet, when role players ran free and wild and facebook hadn't been born yet.  I had more to say back then, or at least more to say that couldn't be put into some sort of order.  I rambled a lot.  Like now.So what do I start off with?  Okay, I'm a writer, first and foremost.  A self-publishing author, which, I know, will immediately make me not an author in…See More

Doodle FOr NF Month

As some people may know, May is Doodle for NF month. It's really simple to participate in this project, as all you have to do is submit a doodle. It can be anything- something you draw in a boring lecture, and it doesn't have to be about anything in particular. But Doodle for NF is really important to me because my brother has NF (Neurofibromatosis) and it raises awareness for this genetic mutation.TO SUBMIT PICTURE:You can send it to me, (on the Ning)You can post it to your social media site…See More
