As a big fan of YouTube, I’ve made some online friends. Most of them are just that-friends that you talk to online, but don’t believe you’ll ever meet in person.
However, there are several people that I did get a chance to meet when I went to Vidcon. One of them was Jason Urgo. He decided to host a YouTube Gathering where people from the YouTube world can meet in person.
I decided it would be a fun event, so I flew down. We were supposed to have a gathering with fun events planned at a local park but Hurricane Irene had other ideas. We wound up going bowling, then going go-carting.
The night ended with Jason graciously allowing us to go over to his place for pizza and other activities.
I sadly had to leave the next day while the others continued on to the Outer Banks.
I know that if Jason or any of the other people I met will host another one, I will definitely go. Who knows, I may end up hosting one.
