"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


How To Be a Nerdfighter!

After I was done reading Looking for Alaska for the first time in Fall 2007 (I know, I was late to the party), I went online and searched for information about John Green to see if he had written any other books I could get my hands on.  Lo and behold, I found An Abundance of Katherines (which I immediately bought), but also this other thing called Brotherhood 2.0 on Youtube.

Brotherhood 2.0 was started on January 1 2007, by John and Hank Green, with the premise that the brothers would cease all text-based communication for a year and instead converse by video blogs every weekday.  For a whole year, John and Hank communicated this way, and it was fascinating!  Their channel, Vlogbrothers, has since gone beyond Brotherhood 2.0, and is now in it's 5th year of inception!

Through Brotherhood 2.0 a community was created called Nerdfighteria.  Nerdfighters are people who are full of awesome, who can be: other YouTube users; fans of John Green, Hank Green, or the Vlogbrothers show; as well as people who adopt the term because they believe they fit in with the community.  Pretty much if you follow the two rules: 1) Don’t be mean, and 2) DFTBA (Don't Forget to be Awesome) then you are also a Nerdfighter!
