Can We Make the Ning Cool Again?

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.

A song, for Esther Day

Hi Everyone,

(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…

P4A is a Go!

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.…

42 Amazing Maps

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…
