Andrew Slack et al 2013:
Can Fandom Change the World? LeakyCon 2013 Panel w/ Hank Green, Anthony Rapp, Mark Oshiro & more
fantasy is not an escape from our world.. but an invitation to go deeper into it…
in Harry Potter’s name – we are seeing injustices in the world.. and taking care of them
over 100 different chapters on 5 continents
usually civic engaged youth come from families that have been civically engaged.. but with hpalliance – most are the first in their families to be civically engaged..
Hank – key is to figure out what matters to you.. find your people.. to make world a better place – wanting to understand the world.. we are all the same..work to make the structure more equitable.. people who think hard about problems
making the thing that is a thing a thing..
via the power of awesome
perhaps harry potter is the beatles of fandom.. it’s not that we don’t like harry potter anymore – we just like all the other fan doms..
24 min – Hank – switching out – what cohesiveness is.. it’s not really about harry potter – it’s about who we are.. and what we care about… the cloud/network – as big ness
26 min – Andrew – how do we make justice viral… money and charity are essential – but can we go deeper..
…how can we fully leverage the brilliance of the nerd fighters
by sharing a narrative that’s already written on all of their (7 billion people’s) heart.. which also happens to be the deep/flexible/alive ongoing equitable leverage…
38 min – sliding fan\dom into the classroom
