I attended Playlist Live DC this September. It was my first 'YouTube' related even since moving to the east coast and it did not quite fill the VidCon shaped hole in my heart but it was an overall good experience. I was on a panel for the first time and met new people, so it was not a loss. Did I enjoy ever minute or think that the conference was without it's problematic moments, of course not. I go into more detail about the differences and how I felt in my video I made. (at the bottom of this post) Overall I'm glad I went and I hope the people I met are willing to reconnect in the future.
