Let me tell you about VidCon. Two words: 1) fun 2) friendly.
The source of this event stems from the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green, so most of the people here are Nerdfighters -- or at the very least very open minded.
The atmosphere seems very inclusive, even though most of this event is about young people getting to meet their YouTube idols.
Speaking of youth, or its opposite, I felt very old at this place. The typical attendee is a fifteen year old girl. All in all, I've gained even more respect for this blossoming new medium. The possibilities are inspiring.
What will YouTube be like in ten years?
