Wouldn't it be cool if nerdfighters could do a big online event so that people in different countries could participate. I really like Joss Whedon and I have this idea of having a big Joss Whedon marathon that everyone does separately or with a few friends offline but at the same time are doing it with the nerdfighter community online. So it would work as a time being set at which everyone would start watching the first episode of Buffy or Firefly (we would have to choose) and when it finishes or while its on, come online and talk about it for a bit. After an amount of time we move on to the next episode and then the episode after that so on and so forth. I think this would be a really good way for Whedon obsessed nerdfighters to meet/bond and I would love any suggestions.
I am thinking that since everyone is in different countries we could start the episodes at the following times of day for different people on Saturday night/Sunday morning:
Australia Melbourne- 7am Sunday 1st of August
USA West Coast - 2pm Saturday 31st of July
USA East Coast - 4pm Saturday 31st of July
England - 10pm Saturday 31st of July
The Greenwich mean time of the event will be Saturday 31st of July 9pm so if you don't live in the areas above use that to calculate what time the event will start for you.
We will be watching Buffy the Vampire slayer 'Welcome to the Hellmouth' first and then an hour after the start time we will watch Firefly 'Serenity' (the pilot not the movie). I will post links to these episodes later in the week, the 15 minute gap or so between episodes will allow for a little bit of conversation but also by starting on the hour both times it will make it easier for people who only want to watch one of either Buffy or Firefly.
We will be using a private chatroom on nerdfighter chat (thankyou to all the people who tried to help with meebo but I think this will be easier), can't wait to see you all there and remember to tell any of your friends who might be interested
