A Call For Speakers – #140Conf 2012 – NYC – June 19/20

The #140conf will be returning to the 92nd Street Y on June 19-20, 2012, where we will once again be exploring “The State of NOW.”

This event is expected to be the largest worldwide gathering of people interested in the effects of the real-time Internet on both business and “me” the people.  View the 2012 event website here.

As people’s voices continue to be heard worldwide, and as we in the States will be entering the final lap of a US Presidential election cycle, the theme for our 2012 event is “Finding and Sharing Meaning.”
