Last week the interwebs were blazing with this vlog by John Green.
Do you know who this guy is? If you have a teenager, I bet they do.
John green is a Young Adult (YA) author and 1/2 of the vlogbrothers. Together, John and his brother Hank have created a culture for people (but mostly teens) that celebrates being awesome. And pretty much anyone can be awesome. Especially Nerds.
John Green is a boss. End of story.
I want my kids to be John Green fans. I want them to subscribe to his channel. John and his brother talk are smart and don’t talk down to kids. They expect that people actually care about politics, health care, equality, and Harry Potter. In a celebrity crazed culture. I would rather my kids follow John Green on twitter than Justin Timberlake. And I really, really, really like Justin Timberlake.
