Okay I'll admit, it's been months since I've been on the Ning and way too long since I've talked to the nerdfighter friends I've made but I'm back and ready for discussion. Let's admit, Hank's video today was awesome. It settled some of our fears that the vlogbrothers would ever sell out and the community would disappear, but now we need to take action too.
The idea of the Vlogbrother's having millions of subscribers scares me. Are we mainstream? Probably. That doesn't really matter…Continue
Last year, when my mom was in the hospital, I discovered the Vlogbrothers, Nerdfighters, and the story of Esther Earl. Feeling inspired and a bit depressed, I wrote this song. I decided that I would record it today for Esther Day.
I hope it helps you if you need it. It was cathartic to write.
(I don’t want to push this sort of thing, but if you do like it, it’s only a dollar on my bandcamp page. :) You can also find the lyrics on the song…

As the majority of the Nerdfighting community will already know, TFIOS had its trailer released not so long ago and can be viewed below. I personally cannot wait for this (so far) seemingly amazing adaptation!.
Project 4 Awesome is in full swing and the results are already incredible. Last time I checked they had reached over $600,000 on the P4A website. As Nerdfighters I have no need to tell you about what this beautiful project is, and what it's about. But I can ask you to take a few minutes to view a few of the videos on offer promoting many worthy charities that desperately need donations.…Continue
Just a quick call out to any would be or actual Vloggers out there in Nerdfighteria! The Ning DFTVA colab has been going for about four weeks now and we are still looking for more people to submit Vlogs to the project. We currently have 15 people on the roster and are looking to include far more than that. So if you are interested in taking part in a Nerdfighter Youtube project drop a message to me, comment here or give the channel a message!
The (still un-named) Colab is going strong as well delve into our third week of posters. We have had videos from Nerdfighters in Canada, England, the USA and soon to be Wales and Scotland too! I am finding the…Continue

I bring you greetings from the land of Dave! That's right, I renamed England after myself, what's the problem? :D.

We plan on having as…Continue

In this vidoe Hank discusses... ah forget it, COPY AND PASTE!

As per the norm, despite watching this video twice, I think John manages to describe the video better than I could. So at the risk of looking lazy I have stolen the video description. Enjoy!

Who better than Hank himself to explain what his video is about:
"The map, as an innovation, is extremely important. Simply constructing a useful representation of our world onto a piece of paper (or clay or vellum or whatever) vastly increased the capabilities of humankind. But we continue to add and alter this medium, in ways that allow for greater…Continue
