VidCon 2014 featured the most involvement to date that Vsauce has had in the festivities. We did a fan meetup photoshoot with Taco Bell, an official autograph signing and Michael, Jake and I all appeared on different industry panels.
I was honored to be on the “Getting Clicked” panel alongside new media giants Mark Malkoff, Adam Mordecai – Editor of Upworthy, Ricky Van Veen Fonder of College Humor, Yousef Erakat aka FouseyTube and expertly moderated by Ashley Perez from Buzzfeed. I always love the opportunity to speak about what has worked for Vsauce2 while also getting to sit beside people I look up to in the industry.
But the biggest thrill of VidCon is getting to personally meet Vsauce fans. It’s easy to live inside a YouTube bubble just focusing on making videos but getting out and interacting with the people behind the “views” will always be exciting. I’m very thankful for all of them.
See you next year, VidCon!
