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.

Media Impact on Teens' Ideas for Their Futures 10 Replies

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

It's All Geek to Me

"Meh."


Three letters that express so much indifference, laziness, mild disappointment, and a general malaise to one's own existence, but there is also much more to that small interjection. It proves a point that language is not static. It morphs (like a verbal giant mechazoid,) with each new generation, each new year, and even with each new Netflix original.


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). 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: …

PUBLISHED MY NOVEL(LA)!!!

Hello! So, I just published my novella thingy called Every Crooked Kingdom on the Kindle Store on Amazon. Should be available for purchase within the next day...two at the most. I would really love to get some Nerdfighter support with this. I'm hoping that forming a decent online following will help in future physical publication much later on down the road, within the next ten years, I hope. Anyway, the book is only $3.99, which I hope isn't too bad for most people. I've posted about it…See More

"Oh my god, that Nationwide one felt like a betrayal. My favorite was the Budweiser one- the follow up with the dog and the horse. The sad version of 500 Miles was just the icing on the cake."
