140 Character Conferences banner

The 140 Character Conferences were events hosted in New York, LA, Des Moines and Hutchinson, KS. Speakers talked for 10 minutes only. Each event had a theme. They were all live events, and I was able to speak at several, host some and help in New York City with hosting.

Jeff Pulver explores communication, and has since he founded Von (remember VOIP? Thank Jeff for that and for keeping the government from stopping it.)  He reached out and said it was time. Let’s do this again. Virtually.

May 27, 2020 there will be the #140ConfLive online at 12 noon Eastern. Because I believe in small steps to get things done, we decided to do just an hour. There is no charge, but you do need to register here. Space is limited.

There are 5 speakers. They were chosen to talk (or sing) about what is going on in their life, as we move into the new way of doing things.

  • Jeff Pulver

Jeff has also been named as “a leading thought-leader on the Real-Time Web”, and says “I’m a habitual entrepreneur who likes to start Internet communications companies.” 

Pulver organizes a conference series called 140 Characters Conference (140conf) that is held in various locations around the world. He has also hosted Camp Jeff that brings people to the Caicos islands to “see the night sky, learn about astronomy and talk about the future.” Today you’ll find Jeff somewhere in the world talking about the new world of communications.
