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.

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.
