This is a copy of an email just send out by Jeff Pulver and is a great read to further understand Jeff’s vision of the Real-Time internet. If you are a member of the media and want to join us please make your request for each individual event: Tel Aviv, LA, London.
#140conf Los Angeles is taking place on October 27/28 – http://lax.140conf.com
#140conf London is taking place on November 17th – http://london.140conf.com
and the #140conf NYC Meetup is taking place on October 21st – http://meetup.com/140conf One of my goals of creating and producing the #140conf events is to in effect enable what could be best described as: “Social Media Heterosis” (hybrid vigor in the social media space) and cross connect communities which are all using twitter as a platform in their business but would have otherwise have never had any reason to meet each or connect with each other. I believe the “State of NOW” represents a big shift in the nature of how we will use the Internet and I look at just about everyone who is a member of the growing worldwide #140conf community to be a pioneer in this new field. When I started working on the first event I had a goal of “producing an event that explored the use of twitter as a platform and looked at the effects of twitter on: Celebrity, The Media, Advertising and Politics.” #140conf events cover these topics, the Arts & Sciences and more. (Please take a look at: http://lax.140conf.com/schedule to see what I mean.) My goal isn’t to be “just a twitter conference” but rather continue to look at how a diverse group of people are being effected by the emerging NOW Internet and provide a platform for people to listen, learn and connect with the people who were sharing their voices and perspectives. If you would like to connect with the future and get a feeling of some of the things I am seeing, please consider attending one of the #140conf events that will be happening in October and November. More information about all of the upcoming #140conf events can be found over at: http://140conf.com I would appreciate it if you could forward this email to your friends and associates and help me spread the word about #140conf and “The State of NOW.” If you would like to get involved with my future events, to speak, sponsor or suggest topics to cover, please feel free to contact me.
