Con reports

For days now I have been thinking: I cannot wait for that feeling of sliding into the familiar hotel chairs in the vidshow room, surrounded by the excited buzz of a hundred or so fans, many of whom I know, some of whom I don't know yet but can't wait to know, all of whom are vibrating with excitement because we are together and we get to watch vids all weekend, and the lights go down and the first vidshow starts and OMG it's real we made it back to Brigadoon here we are it's Vividcon again! ...
I know this sounds corny, but I just love this con so much. I love that it exists in the first place -- that people thought, hey, it would be great to have a con for this thing that we love, let's make one, and they did... I love that this con is home to the best damn geek dance party in the history of the universe. // I love that every year I come away from this con with my sense of vidding's history enhanced and my sense of vidding's possibilities and vastness broadened.[3]
