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.

In case you are unaware, Meh is a term that was coined by The Simpsons all the way back in…

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. 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).

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: …
