365 Nerds

LookingForMyMiracleLookingForMyMiracle Posts: 939 ✭✭✭
Alright, let me say right now that this is crazy. But if it wasn't crazy, it wouldn't be worth doing, would it? I should also say I literally just thought of this about a hour ago, so there may be hurdles I haven't thought of yet. Let me explain what it is. There's been a ton of brotherhood  2.0 style projects over the years, and I love them all. Even the ones I don't watch. You see, these projects are in my opinion the best use of the internet. They're building connections between people who otherwise couldn't communicate at all. But there are problems with them. The people involve struggle to keep up with a tight schedule, and tend to find themselves running out of ideas for new things to do at a certain point. Here's what 365 Voices would be: One vlog everyday of the year, each one from a completely different person. Each individual would have the chance to focus all their creativity and awesomeness on one video, taking part in one epic conversation over the course of the year. I don't know if we could rally 365 nerdfighters with only a month away from the new year, and there are some obvious kinks that will need to be worked out, but I want to try it. So, what's your opinion nerdfighteria? A stupid idea, or a something worthwhile?

    i can honestly say, that if this thing is pulled off, it would be the most ambitious vlogging project I have ever read about/seen/heard about. I'm in as I really love the idea. Hopefully, 363 more Nerdfighters will think so too :P

    I'm in. :)
  • Ambitious? Yes. Crazy? Not even close.
    I'd totally be in for it! You might want to spread this around Our Pants a bit more; stick it in the YouTube forum as well

    The truth is usually both, sometimes neither, but it always depends.

    I -just- made this account .

    I really wanted to express all of my YES for this project. ALL OF IT. :D
  • jurassicaaaajurassicaaaa Posts: 2,349 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Okay! I'm in. Would there be a formula? A list of topics, just vlogs about current issues, that kind of thing?

    Yes, just what ever you would want to talk about. It could be about you, your life, something you deeply care about. You could also try to tie it into what previous vloggers have been discussing.
    On another note, anybody who would like to have an especially hands on role in this project should PM me.

    @mAshley I could give you a later date in the year, which hopefully would give you time to figure out whatever problems you have with youtubing (Though, I should say, I don't think there's a correct way of using youtube. The correct way is whatever you're comfortable with)

    This sounds absolutely crazy and fun that I want it to happen. Why hasn't anyone tried this? I wouldn't mind being part of the 365.

    Would it be like a Day in the life kind of Video? 

    I'm interested. It's only one vlog :)
  • LookingForMyMiracleLookingForMyMiracle Posts: 939 ✭✭✭
    @beccalynn311 Yeah, you could think of it like that.

    I've never vlogged in my life, but this seems like a great project. I'm interested in doing something or other for it.

    This sounds totally awesome and I'm in. Someone should create a Google Doc for everyone to sign up with their name, e-mail, and current YouTube channel. Also, someone should snag the 365Voices channel/account name ASAP so we have it to work with. I say if we can get 31 people to sign up, we should gopher it! Then, during January, we can continue recruiting. Thoughts?
  • LookingForMyMiracleLookingForMyMiracle Posts: 939 ✭✭✭
    @real  Sounds like a great plan, but I was thinking, perhaps it should be called 365 Nerds instead of 365 Voices. Seems slightly more accurate

    @rickyc Dang it, we're going to have wait over a year for that! I feel like we're all on a tetris piece that only goes up at this point.

    I'm totally in. But @Real is right, there's gonna need to be some major organization.

    @rickyc I see. It's never to soon to start the hype. Now, 3 things
    1 If others could mention this project on all those nerdfighter Facebook groups, that would be a big help
    2 To those who don't want to Vlog but still would like to help, you could spread the word about it as mentioned above. Also, I think we'll have some type of intro for all the Vlogs to have. You could come up with ideas for what that would be.
    3 This last one may be to ambitious, and I don't want to spam/annoy them, but it would be incredible if we could get John and Hank's attention. Just getting a tweet from them about this would pretty much make it a sure thing we get the amount of people we need on board.

    Sounds great! I'd love to do a video for my Birthday, which is in January, so that's 1/31st of the first month taken care of. But I just checked and the YouTube channel 365Voices is already taken. 365Nerds and 365NerdVoices are still available.
  • Ohhh this sounds rad! I'm in.

    I'd love to be part of this!

    I also made this account just now so that I could join this project. Yay internet!

    some things you do for money, and some you do for fun, but the things you do for love are gonna come back to you one by one.
  • youlovelucyyoulovelucy Posts: 22 ✭✭
    YES. IN. ETC.

    I'm also down for helping with organization, just tell me what to do!

    Yes, absolutely yes.  I've never vlogged before but I'd really like to be involved in this.  It will be epic.
