Nerd on the Street

Nerd on the Street (sometimes abbreviated as NOTS) is a network consisting of several YouTube channels, social media accounts, and other sources of content.


Nerd on the Street was created in 2012 by Jacob Kauffmann. After retiring his previous website (JK The Site), he started a technology-focused YouTube channel under the name Nerd on the Street. Several months later, he created the first version of the Nerd on the Street website using Google Sites. The website featured a small number of technology-related articles, including distribution reviews, most of which were accompanied by embedded videos from the YouTube channel.

In early 2013, Jacob created the "Entertainment Channel", which would host a number of Minecraft series over the next year, including the Summer SG Challenge, RetroCraft, and Better than Vlogs.

In the spring of 2014, Displaced went into production, and Jacob created a separate gaming channel for future gaming series in order to differentiate the machinima series from other Minecraft videos. Both the creation of the gaming channel and the production of Displaced would mark the first time Jacob brought in other people to help with Nerd on the Street, including Michael and Adam, who had both been involved with Jacob's previous websites.

The creation of Displaced marked Nerd on the Street's first scripted series, and was the first entertainment-oriented content created by the network.

In fall 2014, Brett made his first video for the NOTS Gaming channel, starting a six-month period where most of the gaming content would be created by him and his friends, including Drake, Iain, and Sam.

In November 2015, Nerd on the Street participated in Extra Life by throwing a 24-hour livestream. Jacob, Adam, Brett, Drake, and Stephanie were present, as well as Kirsten behind the camera. After the stream, Stephanie started streaming games to Nerd on the Street's various livestreaming channels.
