Hello friends! We’d like to take a moment to remind you that if your life is sorely lacking in IRL nerdfighter shenanigans, that can be fixed!
We’ve compiled a massive list of location-specific nerdfighter groups that are organized by geographical location, so head on over to this page to find the group(s) nearest you and get to meatspace friend making!
Also, if you know of a group that is not yet listed on our page, please send us an email and it will be added asap.
Greetings friends. I’d like to remind you all that we have a gigantic directory of local nerdfighter facebook groups available for your perusal (accessible from the ‘local’ tab on our home page). Through this list, you can find groups near your specific geographical location and join them and make new friends and have gatherings and LOTS OF FUN.
Over the upcoming months, we’re going to try to do a roundup of photos of nerdfighter meetups and outings, and you don’t want to miss out on that action, so check out the page and join some groups today (or if there isn’t one for your area, make it yourself and let us know so we can add it!).
Thank you good night!
John and I were talking yesterday and we realized that, though we have a somewhat distinct and ever-changing image of what Nerdfighteria is and who it is composed of, we aren’t precisely sure whether or not that image is correct.
Basically, there are a lot of things we don’t know about the people who watch our videos and the people who consider themselves Nerdfighters. We want to change that, so we’ve put together a 30-something question survey.
- It is not required that you answer all of the questions, but we would like as many people as possible to respond so that we can better understand the world we inhabit
- We will, of course, not sell any of this information to anyone. We choose to ask you for information rather than attempting to collect it without your knowledge (through cookes, or whatever.)
- Your responses will be confidential and not tied to any name.
- We may, however, make public information about Nerdfighteria, but it won’t be connected at all to your name and there won’t be any way to trace it back to you.
Again, the more people take the time (it’ll take more than 10 minutes and less than half an hour) to fill this out, the better Nerdfighteria will be. It’ll also help us make decisions like…what kind of content should we produce and where should we go on tour. So, if you don’t take the survey, your voice won’t be counted!
Here’s the link again!
DO THE THING!
My name is Karen Eisenhauer and I’m a senior Linguistics/Anthropology major at Pitzer college. I’ve decided to do my thesis on linguistic ideologies in Nerdfighteria! It’s gonna be totally jokes when it’s done, but I NEED YOUR HELP.
In order to participate, you must be from the USA and you must be a native English speaker. Sorry, international Nerdfighters! Also, please note: if you are under 18, you will need parental permission to participate!)
The following is a link to a short questionnaire which will ask you about your experience as a Nerdfighter. It will also ask you to rank several comments from YouTube. First you’ll have to give me your email address because I have to send you an email with a consent form (or send one to your parents, if you’re under 18). You know, legality issues and whatnot. But after that it’ll only take about 5 minutes to fill out, and I shall love you forever if you participate!
I also am looking for people to give longer interviews. These would take about half an hour and would be done by phone or some online video-chat service. The interview will be about your participation in Nerdfighteria and what you think being a good Nerdfighter means. I’d love to hear your opinions! If you want to participate, contact me:
I’m also on the ning and on nerdfighteria.org. Come find me!
Thanks again, Nerdfighteria. You are made of awesome.
ps Please reblog to spread the word!
Hey all, if you have a few minutes (or longer) to spare, please help Karen out by answering her survey :)
