If you are a student in Southern California, this is something you should be taking advantage of:
The 140 Conference is coming to Los Angeles on October 4th and 5th and the creator, Jeff Pulver, is giving free entrance to the first 150 students. The #140conf events, take place all over the world and have taken place in: New York City, Los Angeles, London and Tel Aviv. These events explore the effects of twitter on a wide range of topics including: Celebrity, “The Media”, Advertising, Politics, Music, Education, Public Safety and Public Diplomacy. The conferences were created by Jeff Pulver with the belief that it takes just one person to make change and that giving speakers a platform to share their beliefs can effect others for the greater good.

The format of the conference is fast paced, in order to provide a platform for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage in conversation. The #140conf events provide a platform for the worldwide twitter community to: listen, connect, share and engage with each other, while collectively exploring the effects of the emerging real-time internet on business.
