Welcome to Jeff Pulver’s 140 Characters Conference! (#140conf)
The 140 Characters Conference: Los Angeles will be taking place on October 27 and 28.
At the #140conf events, we look at twitter as a platform and as a language we speak. Over time it will neither be the only platform nor the only language. #140conf is not an event about microblogging or the place where people share twitter “tips and techniques” but rather where we explore the effects of the emerging real-time Internet on Business.
The original scope of #140conf was to explore “the effects of twitter on: Celebrity, “The Media”, Advertising and (maybe) Politics.” Over time the scope expanded to include Sports, Music, The Arts, Sciences and more. Given the location of #140conf:LA, this event will have a special focus on the use of twitter in the Entertainment Industry.
The first #140conf in New York City brought together people with many diverse backgrounds but the one thing which everyone had in common was twitter. To get a feel of what you can expect at #140conf LA, please review the recorded videos from our NYC event
The schedule for the upcoming event will be unique and fast paced. It was my intention to provide a platform for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage in conversation with the attending delegates. You will find individual talks set to: 10 minutes; “Featured talks” 15 and 20 minutes and the various panel discussions are set for 15 and 20 minutes.
The take aways from this event will provide the attending delegates knowledge, perspectives and insights to the next wave of effects twitter and the real-tme internet will have on business. I hope you consider joining us at the Kodak Theater in October.
Just Added: Kodak presents: Great Web Videos Made EASY with Steve Garfield on October 26th
Note: The “Cast of Characters” represents some (but not all) of the people who you will find at the upcoming conference, including the people who are speaking at the event. To review the people speaking at the event, please look at the event schedule.
