The world has changed, is changing right now, and you know it; it’s exciting and terrifying all at once. The 140 Characters Conference is your opportunity to learn what this change in the world is, how it affects us here in Long Island and how it affects your life and your business personally. When you leave this conference you will walk away with real answers.

The #140conf events provide a platform for a worldwide community to: listen, connect, share and engage with each other, while collectively exploring the effects of the emerging real-time Internet on business. On Thursday May 26th 2011, Long Islanders become a important part of that community.

The schedule is unique and fast paced. We will provide a platform for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage in conversation with the audience. Individual talks are 5 minutes, “Featured talks” are 10-15 minutes and Panel Discussions are 10-15 minutes.

The 140 Characters Conference was launched by Long Islander Jeff Pulver in 2009 in New York City and has become a yearly must-attend gathering for those in the social media industry and those who want to learn about how the State of Now is changing, well, almost everything and how people are using new technologies such as Twitter to improve life and business.

During 2010 there were #140conf events all over the world: Barcelona, SXSW (Austin), New York City, Washington D.C., Tel Aviv and San Francisco, a #140conf Road Trip, #140conf Boston, #140conf Los Angeles, #140conf Detroit and #140conf Small Town.

“We’re at a really early stage of the future…I think together we can chart out a new path for what’s ahead of us”
Watch Jeff Pulver, the founder of the 140 Characters Conferences talk about what 140conf and the State of Now mean to him.
