The 2016 edition of #140conf/State of Now will be taking place in Los Angeles on November 14th.
Join us for 10-minute talks and 15-minute panels from influencers in the areas of technology, lifestyle & health, and more, on how they have used the real-time web to improve their businesses and lives, as well as to inspire change.
Jeff Pulver (@JeffPulver) will host #140Conf along with Debra Eckerling (@WriteOnOnline).
In 2009 internet pioneer Jeff Keni Pulver began curating #140conf events across the United States and around the world. These conferences provide a platform for people to listen, connect, share, and engage with each other, while collectively exploring the effects of the real-time web on business and in their personal lives
The #140conf offers people the opportunity to meet and connect with others from different backgrounds and experiences. For the 2016 conference speakers are coming from across the United States, as well as Canada and the United Kingdom. The sessions are 10 minute talks mixed with a few 15-minute panel discussions, and are preceded and followed by networking. The talks are personal, introspective, and meaningful: some focus on business, others on being.
