Something very special is happening here in Detroit tomorrow. And it has nothing to do with “Detroit 187.”
Jeff Pulver, founder of the 140 Characters Conference is bringing the show to the Motor City. And those of us who live and work here couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it.
I wrote about this incredible event last month, but the big day is now upon us at the historic Fillmore in Detroit. Jeff also has organized a Day of Giving (today) in Detroit.
Below is a link to the Faces of the #140conf Detroit Community – a diverse group of local communicators, of which I’m proud to be a part.
Jeff has brought this incredible conference to cities around the country and the world from Boston and Los Angeles to Tel Aviv. Hopefully, it will eventually end up in your city or town.
My 10 minute talk is about “The DNA of Classic Rock” and how the format has created its communities and tribes. Other sessions run the gamut:
General Motors’ social media guru, Christopher Barger, who helped put this conference together.
And even Detroit Mayor Dave Bing who will welcome this gathering to his rapidly changing city.
So with good weather already assured, here’s hoping this group enjoys a couple of days of coney dogs, Vernor’s, a burger at the Red Coat, some great local music, and the chance to share ideas about community and the real-time Web.
Thanks, Jeff Pulver and everyone who has contributed this event.
