The Green brothers, John (born August 24, 1977) and Hank (born May 5, 1980), are two American brothers, entrepreneurs, social activists, and YouTube vloggers. The two extensively work with each other in their lives and careers, having started their collaborative popularity with their “Brotherhood 2.0” project in 2007. The Greens’ portfolio of online work, which Hank describes as “a small YouTube network with about 15 channels,” includes their main “Vlogbrothers” channel, SciShow, and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, among several others.
Vlogbrothers (sometimes stylized as VlogBrothers) is a Video blog channel on YouTube. The Internet-based show is created and hosted by the Green brothers: John Green and Hank Green. The first incarnation of the brothers’ online broadcasting was the “Brotherhood 2.0” project, preceding the establishment of the pair’s regular vlogging activity through the Vlogbrothers channel.
Nerdfighteria is a community subculture, based mainly online. It began in 2007, when the VlogBrothers (John and Hank Green) rose to prominence in the YouTube community. As their popularity grew, so did coverage on Nerdfighteria, whose followers are individually known as Nerdfighters. The term was coined when John saw a copy of the arcade game Aero Fighters and misread the title as Nerd Fighters.
Project for Awesome
Project for Awesome (often abbreviated P4A) is a community-driven charitable movement on YouTube, created by the Green brothers, Hank and John, most notable for their VlogBrothers YouTube channel. Formerly dubbed the Nerdfighter Power Project for Awesome, the project has taken place in December every year since 2007. The movement was started to have YouTubers create innovative videos promoting their favorite charity and upload it by a certain deadline, with the aim that their promoted charity gains more awareness, and donations from audiences.
