Of all the events I have been involved with since 1996, I am especially looking forward to being in New York City on June 16-17 for the 140 Characters Conference. (#140conf) I feel very fortunate to have been able to bring together a world-class “cast of characters.” from around the globe representing multiple industries and disciplines. At #140conf, the one thing everyone speaking will have in common is their passion for twitter.
Given the current state of the economy, I have decided to extend an offer for up to 30 people who would have liked to attended #140conf but due to circumstances beyond their control, could not justify the costs to join us.
If you would like to apply for a “#140conf Scholarship”, please send Jeff Pulver (jeffp at pulver.com) a message in 140 words or less on “Why YOU would like to attend #140conf.” Extra consideration will be given to those people who also post their entry in their blogs and share a pointer to their blog post on twitter and include the #140conf hash tag.
This offer starts today and will continue until each scholarship is awarded. The winners be awarded on an individual basis and access to the event is not transferable. It will be up to each respective winner to get to New York City to attend #140conf as travel costs are not included. I hope this scholarship program will provide access for a group of people who will benefit from the experience and who will contribute to the event. — Jeff Pulver
