Time for a quick “best of” of VidCon 2011, the second-annual gathering of creators and members of the YouTube community (founded and run by Musician Hank Green and his brother Author John Green, aka VlogBrothers). Oh I’m Nalts by the way. My nametag was titled, “once mattered.” 🙂
Here are some of my favorite 15 moments. Yours? Link below!
- On VidCon’s YouTube Channel, CBS’s Shira Lazar captured some “behind the scenes” clips with your favorite YouTubers. For LOADS of footage from a sleuth of young callabors (collaborators) check out WeAreGoingToVidCon.
- I got to hang out with some of the YouTube Orbitians like Katinatreesee, Urgo6667 and Matt.
- Tobuscus got all cracked-up and performed.
- Julia Nunes performed... rough footage, but isn’t she adorable?
- Rootberry performed live (we missed it because we were socializing in the lobby).
- The amazing Gregory Brothers performed. I missed them too. But that’s okay because the last time I met them I screamed, “I’ve always wanted to meet you.” They reminded me I’d already met them.
- Charlie Todd (ImprovEverywhere and Author of the prank-how-to book “Causing a Scene“) spoke. He’s the bestest.
- Shaycarl’s SonTard did some bad-ass dancing. Acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.

- Liz Shannon Miller (GigaOm/NewTeeVee) writes about how YouTube is changing, and what that means to its relationship with the community (YouTube sponsored the event, but the gathering is autonomous). And check out YouTube’s Cosmic Panda.
- Derrick Lang cleared up in AP and ABC that there were no cute puppies or skateboard fails.
- I took a bunch of photos with Wifeofnalts and some of our favorite peeps. Missed seeing Trippy, Charlie Todd and a few others.
- Olgakay’s picture was everywhere I went… from the news coverage to the attendee bag.
- Fox in LA covered the story… thousands attended, they’z say.
- Thesefolk is already talking about VidCon 2012, which is going to be in Anaheim. Here’s the Vidcon 2012 Facebook page.
