What is a Nerdfighter?
Quite possibly you! Chances are, if you are reading this blog you are a nerdfighter (though you may not know it yet).
A nerdfighter is a person who, instead of being made of out bones and organs like regular people, is made out of awesome. They try to decrease world-suck.
This whole thing was started by two brothers, John and Hank Green. They have a youtube channel called vlogbrothers. John is an author (one of my favorites! he wrote Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Paper Towns to name a couple) and Hank is an eco-blogger turned internet musician.
They’ve spawned an entire internet community and some very cool real-life initiatives. For example, The Uncultured Project was started by a guy named Shawn who quit grad school and took his savings to try and end poverty. Mucho props to him. Hank started his own record label for YouTube musician, DFTBA Records.
There are all sorts of nerdfighters out there. From the large Dr.Who community (I should really watch at least one episode since so many people are so obsessed with this), to the Harry Potter nerds (Wooo!), to gleeks (also wooo!), to people that really like videogames (not so much for me but to each his own).
They have a video explaining all this…
Now that we’ve defined things here are some of my favorite videos to get you started.

(don’t forget to be awesome)
