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


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)


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.

Making a moral version of Grand Theft Auto (Brainstorm thread)

Disclaimer: although I would like to someday make video games, and think it would be cool to make this particular video game, I do not currently have that ability. So I don't want to get people's hope up. This is strictly a brainstorming thread, and if some more talented nerdfighters would like to take the ideas here and make them a reality, go ahead!----------Some of you may be familiar with John's Moral Journey Through Grand Theft…See More
