Last year at #140conf Small Town, we had people from all over America who came to Hutchinson, Kansas and shared their stories as well as the people who came to Hutchinson to hear them. Speakers came from not just Kansas from from 8 other States too. Our speakers shared their stories about the real-time web and how it is changing their lives and their businesses in the Small Towns they lived in.
Of the ten #140conf events which took place in 2010, #140conf Small Town was our 4th largest. In 2011 #140conf Small Town is the only event in America that is being produced outside of NYC.
Because Jeff realized how important it is to provide a stage and a voice to the people outside of the “big cities” whose lives continue to be impacted by the evolution of the real-time web. After a lifetime of producing events in big cities, #140conf Small Town continues to have an impact in how he thinks and how he approaches community.
Having been part of #140Conf events in New York, LA, London, Boston, Detroit and many other cities, I was amazed at the vibe and great energy that we discovered in a small town like Hutchinson. I promise that you will enjoy the experience. The perspectives shared opened by eyes to a part of America which I knew of but never felt connected with. I now do. It is never too late to reach out and discover something about yourself or your country.
