In the coming weeks, a Nerdist social network called “The Node” shall be slowly crawling its way online. One of the focuses of the site will be Nerdsourcing, or crowdsourcing with nerds. Essentially, I believe nerds to be capable of pretty much anything they put their OCD minds to. I want to harness this power for GOOD. No, it won’t always involve promoting a thing for me. Usually it will involve helping others, meeting like-minded nerds or just creating general nonsense for the hell of it. Beta testing invites will go out soon, so stay tuned to this site the way you would a television channel that was about to flash the antidote for the poison you just drank.
After a couple of tremendously successful experiments with the promotion of my stand-up shows with Street Teams, I have decided to make it an official thing from now on! The main complaint was that the name “Street Team” sounded like I was trying to promote a 90s hip hop radio station, so all regional promotion teams shall henceforth be known as NODE WARRIORS. This has been an invaluable way to test out the mechanics of the forums on The Node so if you decide to enlist as a Node Warrior you will receive an immediate invite to the site, as well as tickets to the show and a fun meet-up with myself and the other Warriors. YOU MIGHT EVEN MAKE A FRIEND.
So here are upcoming dates that are in need of your arty, promote-y skills:
Carolines Comedy Club
Cap City Comedy
If you’re available and interested please send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “PICK ME IN [insert city].”
Thank you, Nerdizens! I look forward to Noding with you!
