Welcome!

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.

Bachelor thesis on Nerdfighteria (Questionnaire)

Hello! 

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.
