Are you a fan of anything? Sure you are, and regardless of your level of fandom, you’ve probably had experiences where you’d like to give a little back and affect (hopefully) positive change in the things you love. PBS Idea Channel thinks that’s a good thing, and fandom’s prevalence just might change the course of all media in the future.
Of course, we’ll always have people who are stuck in the past and don’t understand the future, too.

- China isn’t so hot on your slash fanfiction, though, Internet, and they’re making arrests
