If there is one thing that never stops amazing me, it is the Minecraft community. I don't just mean all the incredible Youtubers, modders, mappers, server owners, animators, and artists - I mean the entire community, every single player.
The second day of Minecon was just as busy as the first; as soon as the doors opened, everything immediately went into high gear. Lots of amazing panels were packed to capacity, Jeb gave us a look into the future of Minecraft, and so much more. (If you'd like to see all the events directly, check out the link at the bottom!) In the end, what stuck with me was everyone who came, and how much they brought with them.
There was a moment when I stopped and looked around the convention hall, and realized just how diverse a community we are. People from all walks of life, and from every corner of the world, coming together to share in their joy of just one amazing game. In that moment, I didn't see people from just one country, or just one group, or anything like that - I saw Minecrafters. There were nearly eight thousand people, all in one place, sharing their favorite game, every single one of them an incredible person to meet, hang out with, and talk to about Minecraft.
It dawned on me that all of these people were just a tiny fraction of the entire Minecraft community, nearly 30 million strong, and every one of them just as awesome. I think it's safe to say that all of us are a part of the best game community in the world, and I wouldn't trade being a part of that for anything.
In the coming days, I will be sharing tons of video, pics, and content from amazing people I met at Minecon. In the meantime, you can check out the link below, and see many of the best events at Minecon, Day 2. Enjoy!
