The State of Now #140 conference will be happening in New York City next week on June 19 – 20, 2012. Steve and I will be there. We are excited to be going. The list of speakers is very impressive. There are famous people and not so famous, like us, but all interesting.
Created by the brilliant Jeff Pulver, the State of Now is explained below. (The writeup is borrowed from the official website.)
The underlying theme for this year’s event is: “Finding and Sharing Meaning.”
State of NOW exposes you to the power the Internet has to disrupt businesses, change lives and create serendipity. You will leave with a fresh outlook on how the real time web can be used in your business or personal life to actually do something meaningful.
The truth is that the state of now can not easily be explained, you just have to experience it for yourself. Our schedule is unique and fast paced. It is our intention to provide a platform for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage in conversation with the attending delegates. You will find individual talks set to: 10 minutes and most of the panel discussions set for 10 to 20 minutes.
Prepare to laugh, cry, connect and learn as each “character” shares authentic stories about how this new medium has effected their lives. From barn yard to board room, our eclectic group of speaks may be using the real time web differently but their stories all share one thing in common. The Internet is helping to connect people from all walks of lives who have nothing in common except that we are all humans who are experiencing the same moment in time, together.
Humanity is on the rise and you will feel this at State of NOW.
