How would I describe my experience at the 140 Characters Conference in a word? I cannot. It was a wonderful and crazy experience. It was like being exposed to waves of creativity and ideas. It was a time of professional growth and a time increase my understanding of others.
I enjoy conferences and gatherings which bring diverse people together to share ideas. Not only does it force me to listen to, learn about, and gain an understanding of topics I think I am not interested in; these experiences also help me to be more creative.
At the 140 Characters Conference in New York I listened to presentations by marketers, reporters, activists, visionaries, and more. I met and learned from too many people to mention in a blog post. And I had the opportunity to share what I am currently working on at IRS - and the lessons I have learned from this work. Here is the link to a YouTube video of my talk:
I want to thank everyone I met at the 140 Characters Conference for the thoughts and insights you share with me and the community. I would also like to thank Jeff Pulver for making the event possible, inviting me to speak and being supportive of myself and the other presenters. I hope to be able to attend another 140 Characters event in the future!
