District 3: Magical Media Access

thehpalliance:

Hey. Remember when you raised over 53,000 books earlier this year? Here’s where some of those are going.

Our 2014 Accio Books drive was the most successful one yet. This weekend, one of the campaign’s biggest goals is become a reality. We asked you to donate books to help us build an Apparating Library for the Brightmoor Community Center in Detroit. On Saturday, your donations will be going to their new homes. We’ll be showing you all the awesome stuff from the event on our social media, so keep an eye out.

This event would not be possible without you. Thank you.

Thanks to all the HPA chapters who dominated Accio Books with 82% of the campaign’s impact contributed so much to this wonderful campaign for literacy and education access! We’re so pumped for this event — it promises to be one of the coolest HPA public appearances of all time. Stay tuned for more details!

The YouTube community needs net neutrality.
If big cable companies had their way, content would stop being equally accessible. For YouTubers, uploading videos would be next to impossible to begin with and we’d have to wait hours just to watch one video. Meanwhile, network television clips and dodgy advertisements would get priority access to your eyeballs.
Without net neutrality, channels like the Vlogbrothers may never have existed. That’s a pretty scary thought. Look at it this way: how would your life be different if you had never seen the Vlogbrothers’ videos? How has Nerdfighteria impacted you?

We had a table at GeekOut 2014 and sold some cool stuff!

Way to go, Asheville HPA! 
Does this look like fun to you? Perhaps you should consider starting an HPA chapter! ashevillehpa:
