Welcome to Jeff Pulver’s 140 Characters Conference! (#140conf)
The 140 Characters Conference: @ SXSW 2012 will be taking place on March 12, 2012 at SXSW at the Hilton Austin Downtown, in Salon FG in Austin, Texas.
Access to the event is free to everyone who is registered for SXSW / Interactive 2012.
The #140conf events provide a platform for the worldwide twitter community to: listen, connect, share and engage with each other, while collectively exploring the effects of the emerging real-time internet on business and on “me” the people. The sessions presented at SXSW are a sampling of the type of content one can expect to experience at our worldwide #140conf events.
The format at the #140conf events is unique. Individual talks are 10 minutes, keynotes are 15 minutes and panel discussions are no more than 20 minutes. At SXSW the format has been changed slightly to better fit into the SXSW schedule. Each of our sessions are set to run 15 minutes.
At #140conf SXSW we will be taking a hard look at something Jeff Pulver calls “The State of NOW” and the continued effects the worldwide adoption of social communication platforms such as twitter is having on a number of industries.
The take aways from #140conf @ SXSW 2012 will provide the attending delegates knowledge, perspectives and insights to the next wave of effects twitter and the real-time internet will have on business in 2012 and beyond.
Member of the #140conf community are invited to drop by our booth at SXSW and connect with other members of our community.
After SXSW, the next #140conf event is #140conf NYC taking place June 19-20, 2012 at the 92nd Street Y.
