Hank Green from back in the college days.
If Hank sees this, I swear I’m not a stalker, and I’m a big fan of the way you make cool stuff and put it on the internet.
*http://nerdfighters.ning.com/forum/topics/hank-green-in-his-old-college is not me, but is where I found out about the pics
OK, this is maybe a tiny bit creepy, but mostly I’m just proud that I still own that shirt…and that it’s still way too big for me:
Pretty sure it’s too big for you because you stole it from me in 1997.
So this is exciting: You can now preorder the full set of Crash Course World History and Crash Course Biology at DFTBA Records, complete with episode commentaries from Hank, me, and members of the Crash Course staff.
Sales of the DVDs will help us (along with support through Subbable) to keep making educational content that’s free for everyone forever. And hopefully they’ll also be a great educational resource for schools and individuals who want to learn, like, how life came to exist and what humans have been up to for the last 10,000 or so years.
(If you order them together, you save $20.)
When do you think it was a million seconds ago? No math….no Google.
A very sensible, straightforward, and important video from Hank about climate change.
I think sometimes people don’t think too much about climate change because it’s overwhelming or because there are “competing narratives” or whatever, but it’s probably the most important problem facing our species (and most other species), and we need to understand and acknowledge it.
AUGUST 2008: Author John Green and his brother Hank assemble hundreds of nerdfighters in the Winter Garden at Harold Washington Library Center! Check them out in their fantastic Teen Volume t-shirts! Were YOU there for the excitement?
I was there. That was the first time I ever met John and Hank :)
I was there too! It was the first time I met Karen Kavett (also a bunch of other people I remain friends with today). This is also where I realized I could sell my music and people would buy it, which (with input from Alan) morphed into DFTBA Records. It was a big day for me.
How were we ever so young?
(This was also the first time I met Rosianna, who is now my assistant, and the first time we really understood the power of nerdfighter gatherings, and it happened at the Chicago Public Library, one of the first places to get behind my novels in a big institution-wide way, and wow, what an important day in our lives.)

Hank Games with Hank will be returning soon….
In the meantime, you can watch the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers experience an existential crisis as I, like Gatsby, attempt to repeat the past with disastrous consequences.
