For the few people who expressed some curiosity about the YouTube meet
up in San Francisco, there are now any number of videos on YouTube
chronicling the same people milling around on Pier39.
The organizer's video is posted here
And beneath that, in "comments and responses", over seventy response videos.
Personally, I can recomment PimplyWimp's. If only because he's "in
character" and mesing with people just a little. Whether or not he
set out to send up the event, it's an amusing - and awkward - counter
My own response video lives here. In which I fail to do much
"interacting" with other people.
Meandering off on a tangent, Kevin Nalty from WillVideoForFood.com
posted a video about a similar event in New York (and, perhaps, mildly
sending up the original event....)
So (for anyone still reading....) there's a YouTube meet-up planned in
NYC for 7/7/7
Not a lot of details on it at the moment, although I will mention that
it's not organized by the same people who organized the SF event.
I'll pass on more details as they emerge, although it's a straight-up
"meet up". And sadly, I won't be going...
Mark Day, watching YouTube so you don't have to....
etc. etc. etc.
