Welcome to our special coverage of Jeff Pulver’s 140 Character Conference. What you can expect to see here on this page is a growing body of short profile videos we will be gathering and posting throughout the two day conference. Think of it as a video yearbook of sorts. Each time a new video is posted we will tweet to let you know. We encourage you to RT and share the videos we will be creating together to tell the story of @140conf and the “state of Twitter right now”.
The Roger Smith Community is extremely excited to be a part of your experiece with social media. We look forward to meeting you IRL @140conf. Some of you have called us “The social media hotel”, because we embrace the vibrant social media community in NYC and beyond and use Twitter to facilitate our charter of hospitality and communication with our friends and guests. Thanks for letting us be a part of your community. We have met so many great new people.
Twitter and social media as a whole have very quickly become an invaluable tool for real human communication and are changing our lives in new ways everyday, as well as ways we have yet to imagine. If you remove the technology and consider the utility, what social media does is this: it simply connects people. Yup, that’s right. You and I, we’re connected.
Our team @140conf is Adam Wallace (@adwal), Brian Simpson (@bsimi), John Knowles (@pancity), Abianne Prince (@panmanprod), Aleks Degtyarev (@floatingopera), and myself John Birdsong. If you see us, come up and introduce yourself, and please don’t be shy, find us at our video booth and share your story, we would love to hear what you have to say.
Thanks and enjoy.

ps. We’re human, and we’d love to hear what you think, so please share and comment!
