it’s been a while between postings because, well, i’ve been busy. maine, milwaukee, taiwan, new york, chicago – all since the middle of may. that’s a lot even for me.
if you follow my flickr photo stream then you’ve seen some of the pics, but i’m still getting caught up – almost done! and with those pics, come blog posts. many are in draft form right now, but this first one is about jeff pulver’s #140conf that took place in new york city early last week. i think the best description of the event is jeff’s, from his post-event email:
One of my goals of creating and producing #140conf was to in effect enable what could be best described as: “Social Media Heterosis” (hybrid vigor in the social media space) and cross connect communities which are all using twitter as a platform in their business but would have otherwise have never had any reason to meet each or connect with each other.
heterosis aside – clearly it was the sheer variety of people who showed up and participated that made #140conf worthwhile. put even more simply.. there were lots more artsy people there than at your typical tech conference. ;)
many other people wrote recaps far better than my notes would allow, so i’ll post some of my favorite images here and include links to some posts i found interesting or informative, below. the picture above is from a fun session where a group of us taught supermodel melissa haro (@melissaharo) about twitter. big thanks to jeff pulver for producing the event and getting us all involved.
and just a few pics that reveal my obsession with footware…
