140 Character Conference L.A., 2009

October 27th and 28th I attended Jeff Pulver’s 140 Character Conference in LA. Here’s a synopsis of what the event is about according to the 140char.com site:

“At the #140conf event, we look at Twitter as a platform and as a language we speak. Over time it will neither be the only platform nor the only language. #140conf is not an event about microblogging or the place where people share Twitter “tips and techniques” but rather where we explore the effects of the emerging real-time Internet on Business.”

Adding Excitement to Your Blog: Communicate in Person

I was just trolling through the blog of my friend Annie Hart, “Stories That Change the World,” and I realized how exciting her blog is. She uses video extensively and her writing is fresh and appealing.

Granted, she promotes story telling as a distinctive means of communication so it makes sense to see her in action. But, I thought, don’t people want to see me in action, too, even though I have a much more focused business blog?
