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

yeah – but could we not be more timely.. if timeliness and if free dom matters… and all.


catching fire..


sept 2015 – the terror of change

Yellowstone has broken no contract with us. It makes no pretense of stability.


found while deep diving on entropy:

Entropy: Embrace the Chaos! Crash Course Chemistry

infinite other ways…

2nd law: any spontaneous process increases the disorder of the universe

assumed disorder.. no?

processes that don’t increase the disorder.. require work to be done in opposition to the disorder.. in fact often impossible to achieve.. fact of putting one system into order requires others to be dis ordered..

? again.. who’s to say dis order – rather than.. just not my order

2 min – entropy: measure of molecular randomness.. dis order.. helps make chemical reactions possible and helps us predict how much work can be extracted from reactions..

3 min – spontaneous: doesn’t need outside energy – not how quick it happens –

entropy – doesn’t depend on path it took to get to its state

9 min – enthalpy (heat) enthropy (disorder)

12 min – change in entropy depends on how much room molecules have to move around in



I like what Hank is doing to make YouTube’s awful comment system not useless. Do this for my vids too!

Gaming the Comment Algorithm

let’s give it a try.. let’s game the system..

Classrooms are not sexy, but they work.

for who exactly..?

a nother way


10 min crash course on chemistry


proton neutron and electron came together to form… everything

stuff is made from atoms – atomic theory – einstein mathematcially proved existence of atoms/molecules in 1905

1827 – robert brown.. pollen grains in water.. jiggly mystery till 1905 – caused by atomic particles smacking into grains of pollen


some advice for the real world
