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 Nerd Fighters!

 

My name is Angel and I work for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a severe and deadly lung disease that causes high pressure in the lungs and can make nearly impossible to do everyday task without passing out.

Some of our AWESOME constituents have made "Still Phighting" videos to promote PH National Advocacy Day, Nov 13. In these videos they ask their Members of Congress to support a budget neutral bill that would help bring together medical researchers around the topic of PH and think of new ways to find a cure.

They asked us to help spread these videos and make more. So we made the Still PHighting page on the PHA website. And now I, in no affiliation with PHA, am asking Nerd Fighters for their help!

I'm asking you to please SHARE these AWESOME videos and help these patient's voice be heard!

 

You can watch all of the videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkWffQzsysaPKrn8zflfNnI3AM0J...

 

Thanks!

Angel

Update : This whole list is super outdated and I am going to do my best to create an updated version, but it will take me some time. So far I've checked the status of all the Youtube projects. Then I'll need to figure out how to get someone to put the updated info into this page, which I obviously don't have permission to access. here goes!

Comment by Claire on April 21, 2014 at 7:37pm

So I went and checked, and Nerdfighters International is no longer active. It's not been updated in two years - could its status listing on this page be updated please?

So, this channel is for a series called "The War On World Suck." What initially inspired this (and the making of my lovely ning account) was the book This Star Won't Go Out. I read it and felt... Well, I felt like an idiot. Esther (the girl with cancer in the book) really, really wanted to do something. I've decided that since I can, I will. If you want to check it out, feel free. If you have any ideas, shoot me a message on here or leave a comment somewhere. DFTBA. :)

Project Name: Faceless Vlogging

YouTube User: LibertyNerd 25:

Link: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0k6ZfgSJfWSUgJE83gWmFw

Description: A nerd who, inspired by John and Hank Green, but wishing to remain anonymous, started a vlog in which he talks about many things. The nerd does so by filming various things, and voices over them. From food, to books, to National Geographic, he has big opinions and a low-quality video camera. 

Comment by Unsocializedhomeschooler on January 4, 2014 at 9:37pm

"The Time Travel Project" is a collaborative blog featuring 9 epic stories and illustrations by 9 amazing writers (and an amazing illustrator) about time travel, which, eventually, will all interconnect in genius and awesome ways. It's brilliant.

Carly and Amelia are two Nerdfighting girls celebrating their 12th year of friendship who go to different boarding schools. They decided to start a video blog in vlogbrothers style to keep in touch with each other. Each makes a video per week: Carly uploading hers between Sunday and Wednesday and Amelia uploading hers between Wednesday and Saturday.

I'm a nerdy, regularly quiet, Highschool girl trying to become more confident by updating a vlog about things I am passionate about. I'm trying to make myself and others more awesome.

Comment by Karla Maddy on October 26, 2013 at 1:53pm

My twin sister Katherine and I go to college apart from each other. This video blog is a way for us to keep in contact. Like the original Brotherhood 2.0, Katherine and I are going without textual communication until both of us get home for the summer. We are on a regular schedule in which Katherine makes videos every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and I make videos every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Neecat and Mouse- a youtube exploration in awesomeness

http://www.youtube.com/neecatandmouse

http://neecatandmouse.com/

 

Description: Hi. I'm Nate "Neecat". Over the past couple years some pretty nasty things have been floating around about the so-called generation Y. If you are a millennial feeling overworked, under appreciated, need a laugh. We can't promise anything like that but if you watch we're doing just what we do best to brighten your day. Show you that there are more of us out there. All vloggers are underemployed early to late 20s and overeducated. If our awkward insanity brightens your day than our goal is accomplished. We hope to feature anime, sports, and local emerging musical artists in the Boston and Los Angeles areas.

Thanks for listening and DFTBA!

Im looking for people to VEDA (Vlog EveryDay in August) with me. It's a great way to challenge your self as a Vlogger and meet new people.

There's no set criteria, it will involve 3-6 people and if you like to vlog, you fit the bill!

If anyone's interested or knows someone who is, then message me on here, send me a tweet @Anjiewithajay or contact youtube channel AnjieawithaJay.

Hey fellow nerdfighters :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOfRN0KihOU

I make crash course linke videos in english and german.The first video features Evolution, the second (that will be published in a few days) the solar system.

The educational shows of the vlogbrothers really inspired me, and after a year or so, watching I decided I want to do it myself. Especially since there are not a lot channals in my native language that offer knowledge in an entertaining way.

Free Knowledge for everyone :)

Comment by Cassidy Carraway on July 11, 2013 at 1:34pm

My three friends and I have created a vlog about pretty much anything, but we try to link our content to fandoms.  Our channel is called Fandom Four on Youtube, and the vlogbrothers were (and are) a HUGE inspiration to us.

here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_h7tdRSC2jI_ImMAcjKR3A

we also have a Facebook page dedicated to fantoms called "Dear God. What is like not having fandoms?  It must be so boring"

here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/nofandomsitmustbesoboring

Youtube Links!

Here are some YT links to channels related to Nerdfighteria and educational content!

*Can you think of any more? Pass along any suggestions to an Admin who will then add it to this list should it fit!
