140 Conference New York 2010

The 140 Characters Conference: New York City (#140conf) will be taking place April 20-21, 2010 at the 92nd Street Y. This event is shaping up to being the largest worldwide gathering of people interested in the effects of the real-time Internet on both business and “we” the people.

On April 20/21 we will be taking a hard look at something I call “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 including: Celebrity, “The Media”, Advertising, Politics, Education, Music, Television, Comedy, Real Estate, Public Policy and more.

During the past month I have been working with number of people who volunteered to help curate a session or two at the upcoming event. To date about 80% of the expected 140 speakers have been confirmed and the remainder are in the process of being confirmed. More speakers will be announced in the days and weeks ahead.
