Westword featured a story on another app targeted to fandom for content aggregation. It allows users to create separate collections, or 'nests', for different fandom content. Its creator "examined how many people watch certain shows, what percentage are female, the number of fan fictions posted online, and how many hits those fictions garner. As a result, she can now confidently estimate that there are about 10 million fangirls" in the US.

The Conversation featured a discussion of Leonard Nimoy's impact on fandom. "[I]t’s no surprise that for many fans, the loss of Leonard Nimoy felt like the loss of a family member. Nimoy was happy to be known as the 'geek grandpa,' and embraced his key role in history and development of fandom.

They took a page out of Star Trek and refused to apologize for being different. Just like Mr. Spock."
