Nerdfighters

Nerdfighter Projects

Since John and Hank pioneered the whole idea of collaborative YouTube channels, lots of siblings, friends and even strangers have started up channels inspired by the Green Brothers.

If you'd like to have your project on this page, just leave a comment with a little summary about the project and of course a link to it! (Saying 'link' because only writing the name gives me more work because then I have to search for it as well and honestly it get's tiring.)

Youtube projects:

  • The Ninglings                                                                                                     - TheNinglings is a collaboration channel of 7 Nerdfighters who create awesome by interacting with each other and the community.

Hello there! :)

My name is Hillary, and basically I have an idea! You see,
 my friend Krista and I have been talking about making a collab channel with group of five girls all together including ourselves. Our plan is to have each girl be responsible for making a video once a week on their given day. We thought about the possibility of having a theme each week but we can discuss any further ideas once we are all accounted for.These themes could range from our favourite pillow to the current political issue. The possibilities are endless and entirely up to us! 

Now you are probably wondering what type of girls we are looking for, and that my friend is a good question. Basically, we are looking for any girl that is ranging from ages 17 to 22 so that we all can all sort of relate to problems, experiences or understand one anothers point of view. It would also be great if those that respond to this post are outside of Canada and the Us, although we will not exclude your post! The only reason we ask this is because we would like to have a diversity in opinions and cultures :).  Again everyone is still welcome to respond, these are the beginning stages so who knows what will come about this channel!

Over all we hope that this channel will bring an opportunity to learn about new cultures, meet some amazing people, give us a few laughs and lasting memories and above all a great platform where we can be ourself and enjoy little slice of life.

Comment by Isha on June 25, 2012 at 10:18am

Throughout my life I have always been very inquisitive and I've always loved learning. More recently, however, I have come to realize that most of my friends do not share my passion for learning. I'm not quite sure why this is, but I have a hunch that it's due to the way we learn in school. Because of this hunch, I have started a project making fun, educational videos on YouTube to show my friends and other kids my age that it's not the material we learn in school that is boring, but the way in which we learn it. If we are taught in a fun, exciting way, then the material itself begins to be fun and exciting as well! I know many people already make videos like this, but my channel is a bit different because it's coming from a 17-year-old girl-someone very similar in age to the viewers. It makes a larger impact on teenagers when they see someone their age making educational videos. Who knows, it may even convince them that learning actually can be fun! That’s my goal, anyway :) I have only just started making videos, so I have a long way to go and a lot of improving to do. My channel may lack cool animation and high-tech editing, but it makes up for it in passion and good old-fashioned fun! http://www.youtube.com/ishascloud

Project Sour-face (as the name currently stands)

In short this is actually implementing the whole "stand on the corner and hand out lemons wearing a life shirt" only en masse via nerdfighters, please check it out!!

Comment by Darcy Moon on June 19, 2012 at 1:20pm

I offered to write a letter to anyone who asks, and when the awesome John Green retweeted it, it became a Thing. Lots of nerdfighters are getting involved all over the planet-- and we welcome more to, because this project is becoming more and more awesome by the day. It is about a lot more than just getting letters (although that is still the core event). Check out the Lycoris Letters Project here: http://lycorisletters.tumblr.com/ Get involved. Ask a question for the universe.

To request a letter, submit your name, address, and question to me ( wyverneye at gmail dot com). To submit an anonymous question, visit the tumblr page and use the "talk to me" link on the right. To talk with other Lycorans on Twitter, use the #lycoris hashtag. DTFBA.

Hi Nerdfighteria! I'm Vickie! Please join in the Hanklerfish In Your Pants project.

I'm doing a thank you project for Hank and John with another NF called Charlie. She lives in Aberdeen and I live in London and we've actually never met but we have become friends because of our shared love of Nerdy things. Basically we're trying to do this fan book from people all over the world to send H+J to say thanks and also as a way to meet new people in this awesome community.

PLEASE GET INVOLVED or at least check us out to see what we're all about!

Nerdfighteria Survey

 

My name is Chantale Pard and I am a Masters student in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies at The University of Western Ontario, studying Library and Information Science. I’m currently working on my guided research project titled Nerdfighteria: A Case Study in Young Adult Information Seeking Behavior through Social Media. I’m looking for young adult Nerdfighters between the ages of 13 and 25 to complete an online survey about how they use social media outlets to find information. Studying these survey responses will help us get a better idea of which social media tools are used for different types of information seeking, whether or not Nerdfighters are informally learning anything in the process, and how collaboration through social media tools can build stronger online communities.

You can access the survey and more detailed information on it here: http://app.fluidsurveys.com/s/nerdfighteria/

DFTBA and Best Wishes,

Chantale Pard MLIS Student, University of Western Ontario

Grrr...i'm becoming way more aware of how bad my vlogs are. The summer will bring more time to work on them, but for now, constructive criticism and suggestions are appreciated.

Comment by Gnome on May 31, 2012 at 12:42am

I've started making youtube videos, most of them are going to be vlog style but some will be different. The channel has a few random videos that I've done in the past, but the first real video of the show is about the people who use the word 'literally' incorrectly. Also, sock puppets. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RhzyVxM5d0
