Youtube Creator Conference Recap.

Wow, all I can say again is WOW, what a weekend at the Youtube Creator Conference in Chicago with Brandon Ivey this weekend.  This was a special event put on by Youtube for a small select group of up and coming channels to help their creators grow a lot bigger.

This conference blew away a lot of the other ones that I have gone to for just the amount of information that it provided about the inner workings of Youtube.
