Greetings From VidCon: Day 1

Greetings from VidCon where #Lisa has the time of her life despite the realization that she’s not yet “YouTube famous”. Day 1 highlights include running into Gerald ‘Slink’ Johnson AKA Black Jesus, Tay Zonday and VidCon’s Jim Louderback, who gives us a recap of YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki’s Industry Track key note and shares his excitement about VR.

Special Thanks to “Kevin” and Brett Ellis at Trixin Clothing for being our saving grace!

Thanks for watching

We’re going to VidCon!

#Lisa put together her VidCon survival kit at Sundays on Telegraph where she found quirky outfits from Mars Mercantile and Buffalo Exchange, wacky pins from ZiZi Buttons’ pop-up shop and she also got book recommendations at Moe’s Books for the first ever VidCon Book Swap hosted by Kristina Horner and Jenn Godwin.

Sundays on Telegraph is happening Noon to 5 every Sunday, July 19 through August 30.First hour free in the Telegraph-Channing Garage.

All of the books we’re swapping have a stamped and addressed #Berkeley, “You are my sunshine” postcard in them. If you get one mail it to us to receive a Berkeley care package including pins from ZiZi Buttons!

It’s our first time at VidCon and we can’t wait to be inspired by all of you! Be sure to check out our series, Greetings From VidCon and coming soon, VidCon Elevator Confessions
