Is democracy an ideal, or end-goal for government? Is it a good way to run an organization? Here I question this idea…and point out some deep problems in majority-rule voting systems. I explain how these systems can lead to polarization, and I explain how there are new, radically different ways of thinking about governance and decision-making that can lead to more actual hashing out of issues.

Pretty soon Hank’s whole life is going to be on YouTube. But not in a continuous stream - it’ll be on 341 different channels.

During my time in Ethiopia, I met many people who rely on health care outposts like the one seen in the bottom two pictures here. Through these outposts, children and families get vaccines, diagnoses, and treatment for diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia.

But most of these families, and most of their health care facilities, don’t have regular access to clean water. When I asked people about their greatest needs, almost all of them—from the Women’s Health Army volunteers to children—cited clean water first.

More than 45 million Ethiopians live without clean water. I spoke to women who walk miles every other day with heavy jerrycans to get drinking water for their families. The people I met explained how lack of clean water is a health problem, a financial problem, and a family problem.

So for the next week nerdfighteria is teaming up with water.org to raise money to build sustainable wells so that more than 4,000 people in Ethiopia can have clean water. Please join me in donating—or, if you can’t, in spreading the word. Thanks, and DFTBA.

UPDATE: Bill Gates has pledged to match the fundraiser if we hit our goal of $100,000 for Ethiopia.

edwardspoonhands:

About a year ago, YouTube introduced a system that they thought would increase the level of discourse on the site and make it a better place for everyone. Instead of just showing you the most recent comments on a video, you would (by default) see algorithmically selected comments that would take…

Challenge accepted!

He was sleeping. A youngish looking man was lying down on his bed early on a Tuesday morning with his eyes open and with the back of his head’s hair sticking up. The man slowly sat up and turned over to his side. He looked over at the black alarm clock and read the time. It was only 5:32. He let…

Haha wow. This is too weird.

edwardspoonhands:

It’ll be up on the internet eventually. The talk was pretty laser-focused at people who are a fair way into their professional careers (which is not my core Tumblr audience), but possibly it will be more universally interesting as well.

Let us know when it’s up, okay? I am very curious about it, and I usually find the business-y stuff you talk about to be very interesting.

I met a Nerdfighter yesterday! A real live nerdfighter that is pure awesome. You have no idea how elated I felt but I knew that my inability to be come Hank Green would come up somehow. I felt so ashamed that in the present I am not Hank Green yet and I don’t know what to do. I’m thinking about using my magical powers…

OMG I just found this awesome blog

Guys, Hank is going to be uploading videos every single day from now on. I’m gonna get totally addicted to Hank (if I’m not already). 

Now you can look at Hank’s face everyday.

Haha, as if I couldn’t already. But seeing new content of his face every day is something else.

Wow, how have I not seen that? Also, I want that song!
