It's been a very busy week or so, including being knocked out for a couple of days with the flu, so I'm catching up on my work and on my vlogging.

But this is just a quick announcement to anybody who's interested in coming to the Second Annual San Francisco "As One" YouTube Gathering. It will be on Pier 39, by Fisherman's Wharf, from noon to 3 PM on Saturday, February 23rd.

And, for those who are interested, is the link to the video I shot at last year's event. See you there this year on the 23rd!

The continuation of my day with Ira (citizenstand)... After lighthouse point, we went up to the Mystery Spot, a local tourist point. I've lived in the area for nearly 20 years, and this was my first visit. Ira's lived here his whole life (except for the last two, when he's been in Germany), and it was only his second visit.But, sometimes it's fun to be a tourist in your own backyard, so we went.

It's actually slightly more amazing and interesting in person than it appears on video. But not much. It's silly, and amusing, and fun, but not really all as eerie as they'd like people to think. Anyway, here's the video:

CitizenStand makes fascinating short videos (average of 30 seconds) in which he does nothing but stand. He's basically a visual artist, using the video medium to make interesting self-portraits of himself set against different historic buildings, daily events, and other situations.


He lives now in Berlin, Germany, but is on vacation back in the U.S., and staying with his family about 20 miles away from me. We met up today in Santa Cruz, where I asked him about his videos and his art:

After this video was shot, we went to the Mystery Spot - that video will follow in a day or so...

It's always fun to meet other 'Tubers. A couple of months ago, Anthony (ajdpadbury) came to visit the Bay Area from England, and we had a great day together in the city.

This past Sunday, it was Regina (MixedPixel) visiting from Germany, on a business trip to Palo Alto. While walking around the town, videotaping, of course, we ran into a couple of other 'Tubers. Here's the resulting video:

I've been lucky, so far, that each of these meet-ups has gone so well. Thanks to YouTube, I now have friends literally all over the world. Pretty cool, eh?
